\"Deciphering Galaxy Evolution: Defining and Detailing Galaxy Groups at Greater Distances\"

Some of the most fundamental properties of galaxies, including their morphologies (shapes) and star formation rates, depend on their environment. Many of the transformations that convert blue, star-forming galaxies to red, passively-evolving galaxies are believed to transpire in the galaxy group environment. The physical processes responsible, however, are not well understood nor are the details of group membership at earlier cosmological times. I will present an overview of what has been learned by the Group Environment and Evolution Collaboration (GEEC) about galaxy groups at intermediate redshift, when the Universe was roughly 5 billion years younger. Emphasis will be on the global properties of optically- and X-ray-selected groups including mass and evolutionary state. Preliminary results of an ongoing study of the central regions of galaxy groups will also be discussed.

The colloquium will begin promptly at 12:30 p.m. in Science Center 199
