Cosmological Evolution of Galaxies
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 88

Description:
I review the subject of the cosmological evolution of galaxies, including different aspects of growth in disk galaxies, by focussing on the angular momentum problem, mergers, and their by-products. I discuss the alternative to merger-driven growth -- cold accretion and related issues.
