Explaining the relationship between galaxy sizes and their spatial distribution.

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Galaxies come in different shapes and sizes. One hypothesis is that the sizes of galaxies depend on the properties of their surrounding environments. This hypothesis makes a specific prediction on how galaxies of different sizes are spatially distributed in the Universe. Here we examine this prediction and provide a physical explanation of the relationship between the sizes of galaxies and their spatial distribution. This work will allow us to better understand the validity of the hypothesis.
