The Structure and Evolution of Galaxies

The Structure and Evolution of Galaxies is a concise introduction to this fascinating subject providing the reader with the fundamentals in a clear and accessible style. The book assumes some prerequisite knowledge of astronomy, with the necessary mathematics kept to a minimum. Beginning with an introduction to the existence of our own and external galaxies, the book moves on to discuss how perceptions of galaxy development have changed over time. The three categories of galaxies are then considered with later chapters considering their formation and evolution. The book concludes with a discussion on both current developments in the field and considers the direction that future research is moving towards.
