Welcome to the pages of the GECO group
The Galaxies, Etoiles et Cosmologie (GECO; Galaxies, Stars, and Cosmology) group covers a wide range of topics going from stars to cosmology. In particular it covers the study of:
- the interstellar and intergalactic media,
- the different phases of the formation of stars,
- the physical processes involved in the formation and the evolution of galaxies and their environment,
- the dynamics of galaxies,
- the large-scale structure of the Universe,
- the dark matter properties,
- the cosmological model.
On-going calls for telescope time, grants, travel money, positions, conf/workshop registrations (pertinent to the team).
