« The chemical enrichment of the intergalactic medium »

Joop Schaye
Leiden Obs. (Leiden, Pays-Bas)

The enrichment of the intergalactic medium with heavy elements provides us with a fossil record of past star formation and a unique laboratory to study galactic feedback processes. I will present recent results from observational and theoretical studies of intergalactic heavy elements. I will discuss which findings are likely to be robust, what "accepted wisdom" might be in need of revision, and what the outstanding questions are.
