Contents:
History of the local group / S. van den Bergh -- Primordial nucleosynthesis / G. Steigman -- Galactic structure / R.F.G. Wyse -- The Large Magellanic Cloud : structure and kinematics / R.P. van der Marel -- The local group as an astrophysical laboratory for massive star feedback / M.S. Oey -- Hot gas in the local group and low-redshift intergalactic medium / K.R. Sembach -- Stages of satellite accretion / M.E. Putman -- The star formation history in the Andromeda halo / T.M. Brown -- Bulge populations in the local group / R.M. Rich -- The local group as a laboratory for the chemical evolution of galaxies / D.R. Garnett -- Massive stars in the local group : star formation and stellar evolution / P. Massey -- Massive young clusters in the local group / J. Maíz-Apellániz -- Magellanic cloud planetary nebulae as probes of stellar evolution and populations / L. Stanghellini -- The old globular clusters : or, life among the ruins / W.E. Harris -- Chemical evolution models of local group galaxies / M. Tosi.
Summary: The Local Group of galaxies consists of the Milky Way and all of its neighbours. The proximity of these galaxies allows for detailed studies of the processes that have led to their formation, structures, and evolution. In particular, studies of the Local Group can test predictions of structure formation that are based on dark energy and cold dark matter. This 2006 book presents a collection of review papers, written by world experts, on some of the most important aspects of Local Group Astrophysics. It is an invaluable resource for both professional researchers and graduate students in this fascinating area of research.
