About this book

Galaxies are the basic unit of cosmology. The study of galaxy formation is concerned with the processes that formed a heterogeneous universe from a homogeneous beginning. The physics of galaxy formation is complicated because it deals with the dynamics of stars, thermodynamics of gas and energy production of stars.

A black hole is a massive object whose gravitational field is so intense that it prevents any form of matter or radiation from escaping. It is hypothesized that the most massive galaxies in the universe - elliptical galaxies - grow simultaneously with the super massive black holes at their centers, giving us much stronger evidence that black holes control galaxy formation.

This book reviews new evidence in the field.
