The discussion on the universe, using a common language of atomic elements and nucleosynthesis, is presented by leading figures from a wide variety of fields — astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology, nuclear physics and particle physics.

Abstract. We review some of the present ideas on chemical evolution of irregular galaxies and disks of spiral galaxies. Based on the O abundances in stars and H II regions we present a discussion of the yield; we also discuss the effects of large scale mass flows and of cold dark matter to explain variations in the observed by: 1.

This new title discusses recent astronomical observations of molecules in various regions and eras of the Universe, and on describing the processes that determine the chemistry. These processes include gas phase neutral exchanges and ion-molecule reactions, surface reactions on dust grains, and the radiative processing of dirty ices.

Coverage includes chemistry in the early Universe and in. Evolution of Galaxies There are several senses in which galaxies evolve with time, not all necessarily running at the same rates for various kinds of galaxy.

We may distinguish for convenience evolution of stellar populations, chemical abundances, and dynamics of a galaxy, remembering that in real galaxies these are all tied together at some level.

Supernovae are a major source of the chemical elements in galaxies and the universe. They are not only the site of nucleosynthetic processes, but they also deliver their products to the interstellar medium together with energy and momentum.

Possible clean ex-library copy, with their stickers and or stamps.Abstract: In this lecture I will introduce the concept of galactic chemical evolution, namely the study of how and where the chemical elements formed and how they were distributed in the stars and gas in galaxies.

The main ingredients to build models of galactic chemical evolution will be described. They include: initial conditions, star formation history, stellar nucleosynthesis and gas flows Cited by: 4.The study of galaxy formation and evolution is concerned with the processes that formed a heterogeneous universe from a homogeneous beginning, the formation of the first galaxies, the way galaxies change over time, and the processes that have generated the variety of structures observed in nearby galaxies.
