Reionization and Dwarf Galaxies

Prof. Evan Skillman

Abstract

The epoch of reionization has been predicted to leave an imprint on the star formation histories of dwarf galaxies. I will briefly review theoretical ideas and observational constraints on reionization. I will then discuss the predicted effects on the evolution of dwarf galaxies.
This will be followed by a discussion of tests using star formation histories of nearby dwarf galaxies.
