Event Details

The mysterious lack of star formation in a substantial fraction of the galaxy population over a wide range in both stellar mass and redshift has been the subject of much discussion over the years. We can gain information about the quenching processes that operate specifically on satellite galaxies by studying their star formation properties as a function of redshift, mass, and environment. But what about central galaxies? Detailed studies of galaxies at low redshift have not provided answers. In this talk Dr. Quadri will present observations of low-mass satellites out to z~2, and will discuss how such observations can be used to provide novel constraints on the processes that quench star formation in central galaxies.
