Lunch Talks

The physics driving the star formation rates of star-forming galaxies

Observations of the evolution of galaxy specific star formation rates have disagreed with theoretical models and numerical simulations for the past decade. In this talk I will explain which physical processes in models/simulations are responsible for this tension. In particular, I will discuss the role of feedback in driving outflows, suppressing inflows, and the recycling of ejected gas. I will show which steps must be taken in models/simulations to resolve the discrepancy with observations.


Unless announced otherwise, the lunch talks start at 12:30 sharp. The approximate duration of the lunch talk is given above, and additional time will be given for questions and discussion following the presentation. Please make sure that you take ample time to pick up your lunch beforehand.

Information for Speakers and Hosts: Talks by internal speakers are limited to 20 minutes, with additional time for questions. Visiting speakers can have up to 30 minutes, with additional time for questions. Hosts are responsible for bringing the speaker to the correct room in ample time to set up laptops etc., and for ensuring the speaker also has time for lunch.
