|Title||Evolution of Cosmic Large Scale Structure and Galaxies From the COSMOS Survey |
|Speaker||Nick Scoville, California Institute of Technology|
|Abstract||The COSMOS survey, covering 2 degrees and detecting over a million galaxies,
enables the mapping of large scale structures in the early universe for
the first time over scales up to 100 Mpc. The properties of the galaxies
(mass, luminosity, star formation and merging rates) change remarkably
as a function of both their cosmic lookback time and their environments.
These observational results are analyzed and compared with both large
scale dark matter simulations and theoretical models. I also will
discuss ongoing/future work to be done with ALMA in galaxy evolution.
Refreshments will be served at 3:45.
