About this book

These proceedings address three key issues on galaxy scaling relations: their origin, evolution and applications in astronomy. The authors discuss various aspects of the scaling relations like their interplay with luminosity and galaxy formation, their connection to the redshift and their applications as distance indicators. The workshop was part of the ESO conference series designed to survey the status of the most active areas of astronomical research in view of the rapidly-approaching beginning of the VLT scientific operations.


Origin; evolution; applications; posters.
