Annotation Proceedings of a meeting sponsored by the Vatican Observatory and held at Pontifical Gregorian U., Rome, in June 2000. The conference included some 230 participants from 30 countries and covered topics related to the structure, formation, and evolution of galaxies with disks. Topics include the stellar and gaseous disk of the Milky Way; the global characteristics of galaxy disks; their structure, morphology, and dynamics; the gaseous components, star formation, and chemical evolution; the interactions, accretions, mergers, and starbursts; the dark and luminous matter; the establishment of the scaling laws; and the formation and evolution of disk galaxies from theoretical and observational points of view.

"This book provides a comprehensive overview of the structure and evolution of our Galaxy, as well as of overall advances in the most rapidly developing areas of galactic research." "Both observational data and theoretical concepts are presented, offering the reader a broad perspective on the most important and current topics in galactic astronomy, such as chemical evolution, the history of star formation, collapse of the Protogalaxy, starbursts, and early galactic winds." "This comprehensive monograph will prove invaluable for a wide audience, including those interested in ages, kinematics, interstellar medium, and the structure and origin of galactic components. It will be especially valuable for students and researchers working in various fields of galactic (and extragalactic) astronomy."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This book is based partly on a. lecture course given at the University of Tri este, but mostly on my own research experience in the field of galactic chemical evolution. The subject of galactic chemical evolution was started and developed by Beat rice Tinsley in the seventies and now is a flourishing subject. This book is dedi cated to the chemical evolution of our Galaxy and aims at giving an up-to-date review of what we have learned since Tinsley's pioneering efforts. At the time of writing, in fact, books of this kind were not available with the exception of the excellent book by Bernard Pagel on "Nucleosynthesis and Chemical Evolution of Galaxies" (Cambridge University Press, 1997), and the subject of galactic chem ical evolution has appeared only as short chapters in books devoted to other subjects. Therefore, I felt that a book of this kind could be useful. The book summarizes the observational facts which allow us to reconstruct the chemical history of our Galaxy, in particular the abundances in stars and in terstellar medium; in the last decade, a great deal of observational work, mostly abundance determinations in stars in the solar vicinity, has shed light on the pro duction and distribution of chemical elements. Even more recently more abun dance data have accumulated for external galaxies at both low and high redshift, thus providing precious information on the chemical evolution of different types of galaxies and on the early stages of galaxy evolution.
