Low Surface Brightness Universe

J. Schombert (UOregon)


At the beginning of the 21st century, it is now recognized that the Hubble sequence of galaxy types covers the full range of luminosity and stellar density (surface brightness), and that galaxy formation/galaxy evolution/star formation history concepts need to be developed to explain all portions of the luminosity/surface brightness plane (i.e. there is no simple linear galaxy sequence)
