Galactic Archeology with Large Computer Simulations and Spectroscopic Surveys

The Milky Way is the galaxy we can study in most detail. Large spectroscopic campaigns combined with photometric and astrometric surveys provide us an integrated view on the chemical and kinematical properties of these galaxies and its various stellar populations. Combined with the results of cosmological gas dynamical simulations we thus can disentangle the various physical processes that have shaped the Galaxy's structure and get a detailed view of the complex structure of the Milky Way and its convoluted formation history.
