« Using the Magellanic Clouds to understand the interaction of galaxies »

The interaction of dwarf galaxies and the accretion of dwarf galaxies onto massive galaxies are two common processes in the formation and evolution of galaxies. These phenomena can be studied in detail in our neighbourhood. The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds interact with each other and are on the path of tidal disruption under the influence of the Milky Way. In this seminar, I will present the current view of the Magellanic system and I will highlight some of the measurements that characterise the history and structure of the galaxies, as well as the kinematics from the observations of resolved stellar populations. In particular, I will focus on results obtained from the VISTA near-infrared survey of the Magellanic Clouds system and from other contemporary surveys at different wavelengths.
