Evolution of massive galaxies and their AGNs with the SDSS-III/BOSS survey

October 25 - 28, 2010

Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (IPMU)

The University of Tokyo

This workshop aims to bring together individuals from the BOSS community with a strong interest in studies of luminous galaxies and/or AGNs (+QSOs) in order to foster collaborative efforts across these disciplines.  The format of the meeting will involve a mixture of science presentations, working group sessions and ample time for interaction and discussion.  Topics will include the following:

  1. Mass function of luminous galaxies

  2. Environmental drivers of galaxy evolution

  3. Stellar populations

  1. Active Galactic Nuclei in luminous galaxies

  2. QSOs: mass/luminosity function, Eddington ratio

                                    distributions, clustering
