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.
