?The Universe at z=2-4: New Insights into Galaxy Formation and Evolution?

Danilo Marchesini
Yale University

In the past five years, our understanding of the galaxy population at
redshift z=2-4 has improved significantly. As the redshift range z=2-4
represents a key epoch in the buildup and evolution of galaxies,
studies of the properties of galaxies at these redshifts provide
important clues on the physical processes at work during galaxy
formation and evolution. I will summarize our current knowledge of the
galaxy population at z=2-4, as well as discuss these results in the
context of the latest generations of galaxy formation models. I will
conclude by presenting the most relevant open issues and how these will
be addressed by ongoing projects and future facilities.

Refreshments served in Burden Lounge, Anderson 108, at 2:30 pm.
