'Galaxy Formation: Science at the Intersection of Diverse Physics '

Understanding galaxy formation requires a wide-ranging array of physics including dark matter, cosmology, gas dissipation, radiative transfer, chemical enrichment, and hydrodynamics. While this scientific breadth makes for a challenging problem, the large range of astrophysics involved also makes galaxy formation a fun and promising field for long-term research. In this talk, I'll present an overview of selected outstanding theoretical problems in early galaxies, star formation on galactic scales, and the formation of dark matter halos, along with some recent successes that have inevitably posed further questions about how galaxies form and evolve.
