Lighting Up the Dark: How Galaxies Trace Dark Matter on Large Scales
It will discussed that how measurements of the spatial distribution of galaxies on very large scales constrains both our understanding of cosmology as well as the physics of galaxy evolution.
Also observed data and theoretical models of large scale structure both in the nearby and distant Universe will be discussed.
