Dwarf-Galaxy Cosmology

Publisher: Hindawi Publishing
Number of pages: 238

Description:
Dwarf galaxies provide opportunities for drawing inferences about the processes in the early universe by observing our "cosmological backyard" -- the Local Group and its vicinity. This special issue of the open-access journal Advances in Astronomy is a snapshot of the current state of the art of dwarf-galaxy cosmology. The issue contains fourteen review papers, and one original research article.

Book cover: Lopsided Spiral GalaxiesLopsided Spiral Galaxies
by - arXiv
The light distribution in the disks of many galaxies is non-axisymmetric or 'lopsided' with a spatial extent larger along one half of a galaxy than the other. In this review, the observations to measure the lopsided distribution will be discussed.
