Expert physicists from around the world are coming together Thursday (Jan. 30) through Saturday (Feb. 1) for the Circumgalactic-Medium Workshop at Notre Dame. The workshop, titled “The Impact of Gas Fueling, Quenching and Feedback on the Growth of Galaxies,” will meet in McKenna Hall at the University of Notre Dame.
During the workshop, theorists and observers from the United Kingdom, Germany, France, South Africa and major institutes and universities in the United States will lead group discussions on topics such as the most important physical processes that drive galaxy evolution — fueling, quenching and feedback. They will address the physics that dominates galaxy evolution and the signatures of the important physical processes in the gas that surrounds galaxies.
