Galaxy Scaling Relations: Origins, Evolution and Applications : Proceedings of the ESO Workshop Held at Garching, Germany, 18–20 November 1996

This book is part of the ESO conference series meant to survey the current status of different areas of astronomical research and explore science opportunities with the European Very Large Telescope (VLT). The research presented focuses on the origins, evolution and applications of galaxy scaling re...
