Ultraviolet Observations of Galaxies

Mark Rutkowski, Minnesota State Univeristy

Ultraviolet observations are essential for answering fundamental questions regarding the role and impact of galaxies in universe. I’ll discuss a number of past, ongoing, and future UV-optical-near IR high redshift surveys with which I am involved and the specific constraints the UV provides on these open questions. Specifically, I’ll highlight the utility of UV observations of starbursts and quiescent galaxies alike for constraining the history of reionization, hierarchical assembly, and (if there’s time) the cosmic history of metals.

The role if the intergalactic medium in the baryon cycle

Valentina D’Odorico, INAF Osservatorio Astronomico di Trieste

The intergalactic medium (IGM) plays a relevant role in galaxy evolution being the reservoir of gas for star formation and, at the same time, collecting the products of star formation ejected from galaxies. The IGM is studied mainly in absorption, in the spectra of high redshift bright objects. In this talk, I will briefly review the recent development in the study of the IGM, in particular the determination of its metal enrichment, in the context of the baryon cycle in galaxies. I will focus my presentation on the high redshift regime, reaching the epoch of reionization, where strong constraints are set to the models of galaxy evolution.
