Emission-Line Galaxies in the Era of Cosmological Surveys // Cosmological surveys in the next decade will contain multiwavelength information of billions of galaxies. The challenges ahead are distinguishing between different cosmological scenarios and/or gravity models and track accurately the build-up and formation history of galaxies. In this scenario, the role of galaxy formation is enhanced by the varied selection...

Puzzles in Galaxy Scaling Relations // Galaxies like our Milky Way can be described in terms of their structure, dynamics, and stellar populations. Some very robust correlations between galaxy structural properties, such as total luminosity, maximum circular velocity, and size display rather small scatter, hinting at well-regulated galaxy formation processes. A major challenge to understanding these scaling relations,...
