Abstract Note"Understanding how the form and structure of galaxies have evolved has profound implications for our knowledge of how the Universe itself has been shaped over the past 12 billion years or so. This book discusses the evolution of the galaxies in detail and, whilst acknowledging the boundaries of what we know about the most distant galaxies, makes important comparisons between nearby galaxies and the most distant currently observed."--Jacket
Contents NoteTaking the measure of the low-redshift universe -- Which properties of galaxies can likely evolve (and be measured)? -- Observations of an evolving universe -- Galaxies at the contemporary limits -- Observational cosmology -- Astronomical instrumentation of the future
