Most galaxies lie in clusters, where tidal interactions are a significant force. Tidal and dynamical interactions and the features they cause in galaxies are important to the study of galactic evolution. For example, a large amount of data has been collected on dust-lane ellipticals, polar-ring galaxies, spirals with extended warps, and galaxies with inclined HI rings or unusual "tails." This book is a record of a meeting held at the University of Pittsburgh that provided an informal, yet focused environment for the interaction of astronomers who have addressed these questions with a wide variety of skills, techniques, and points of view.

Industry Reviews

"The papers, intended for graduate students and professional astronomers, are unusually well written. The reader will be grateful that the book is well indexed and will also appreciate the transcription of the workshop's wrap-up discussion." Science Books & Films
