The metal-poor IMF, stellar evolution, and star formation histories

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

I present an introduction to three important subjects relevant to low metallicity star formation: the IMF, stellar evolution, and star formation histories. I will draw on observations from the LCID (Local Cosmology from Isolated Dwarfs) project to illustrate some of these topics.
