Dwarf Galaxies

Polychronis Papaderos

This advanced course aims at providing a broad and up-to-date overview of the properties of dwarf galaxies in the local Universe and at intermediate redshift. How dwarf galaxies form and evolve over cosmic time in different environments is one of the most fascinating and fundamental questions in extragalactic astronomy.
While dwarf galaxy research has seen tremendous progress over the past two decades, several key questions remain unresolved, and ever-improving observational data constantly challenge our understanding of dwarf galaxy evolution.
