"The cosmic web & its inhabitants" by Caterina Lani
When studying the Universe on large-scales, it is apparent that galaxies are not randomly distributed. They instead form a well defined structure known as the Cosmic Web. This structure consists of densely populated regions connected to each other by filaments, and large empty regions known as voids. The formation, evolution and properties of galaxies are related to where they reside in the Cosmic Web, i.e. the environment. In this talk I will discuss the different environments, as well as how dark matter shapes the cosmic web and its inhabitants.
