" Constraining early galaxy formation with extragalactic globular cluster systems "

Lee Spitler (Swinburne University)


Systems of globular clusters constitute one of the oldest, distinct stellar systems observable in galaxies today. Most globular clusters formed approximately ~12 gigayear ago, hence their properties are sensitive to the conditions at this early epoch. I will discuss our efforts to determine the influence of such conditions on the present-day properties of galaxies by contrasting the GC systems in host galaxies of different masses, environments and morphologies.


Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
