Galaxy formation and evolution is at the forefront of modern astronomy research; new space and radio telescopes and sophisticated numerical
modeling are challenging our views of galaxies young and old. The faculty and special invited speakers will present a comprehensive series of
lectures and hands-on projects in the unique ambience of the Papal summer villa that promises to make this school an unforgettable experience!
During the course of the school, students will also present a short paper on their research or the research of their home institution.
2) Basic properties of nearby galaxies masses and star formation, gas content, stellar ages and galaxy evolution, numerical models;
3) Distant galaxies as seen by HST - HST capabilities, results on galaxies;
4) Distant galaxies as seen by EVLA & ALMA;
5) The most distant galaxies & the Dark Ages - observations and models;
6) Promise of low frequency radio arrays; Promise of JWST.
