« To what extent can today's properties of galaxies be predicted from their initial conditions? »

In the context of galaxy formation, many questions are left unanswered theoretically. What's the impact of accretion and merger on the morphology of a galaxy? What about the environment? What's the relative importance of baryonic physics?
In this talk I will try to tackle these questions using the excursion set theory, a theory based on the analysis of the initial conditions of the universe to build observables (mass accretion, mass function, …) and study the evolution of galaxies.
