The Great Andromeda Galaxy:
A workshop to celebrate
Martin Schwarzschild’s Centennial

Princeton University, June 18-20, 2012

Martin Schwarzschild (1912-1997) was a professor of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton University. This conference will celebrate his memory on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth. The scientific program presents a comprehensive examination of the Great Andromeda Galaxy as a gateway to understanding the formation and evolution of galaxies, their stellar populations, interstellar media, and dark matter halos, a topic that integrates the diverse and seminal contributions of Martin Schwarzschild throughout his research career.
