Overview

The Hubble Deep Field (HDF) is the deepest optical image of the Universe ever obtained. It provides a unique resource for researchers studying the formation and evolution of stars and galaxies. This volume provides a comprehensive overview of the scientific impact of the HDF on cosmology. It presents articles by a host of world experts who gathered together at an international conference at the Space Telescope Science Institute. The HDF is set to revolutionize our understanding in cosmology. This book combines both observations of the HDF at a variety of wavelengths with the latest theoretical progress in cosmology. It therefore provides an indispensable reference for all graduate students and researchers in observational or theoretical cosmology.
