9780521889865: Low-metallicity Star Formation (IAU S255): From the First Stars to Dwarf Galaxies (Proceedings of the International Astronomical Union Symposia and Colloquia)

Although low-mass metal-poor galaxies in the local universe have often been proposed as the 'primordial building blocks' in the hierarchical scenario of structure formation, several lines of evidence suggest that this may not be true. Moreover, it is not clear to what extent dwarf galaxies, because they are metal poor and because of their kinematics and structure, can tell us about how star formation proceeded in the early universe. This volume provides an overview and the most recent advances in this debate. IAU Symposium 255 presents the most up-to-date developments in six key areas, including: Population III and metal-free star formation; metal-enrichment, chemical evolution and feedback; explosive events in low-metallicity environments; dust and gas as seeds for metal-poor star formation; metal-poor initial mass functions, stellar evolution and star-formation histories; and low-metallicity star formation in the local universe. This overview is at a level suitable for research astronomers and graduate students.

Book Description:

Tiny chemically unevolved galaxies in the nearby universe have often been considered local examples of primordial stellar systems. New instrumentation and sophisticated computer simulations have cast doubt on this hypothesis, enabling astronomers to better understand how stars form at the cosmic dawn. This volume presents state-of-the-art research considering this debate.
