10 years of Galaxy Evolution

Arjen van der Wel , MPIA
To conclude my ~10-year stay at MPIA I will give an overview of the progress in understanding the formation and evolution of galaxies that we have made over the past decade. This summary will be broad, ranging from theory and simulations to the observations of distant star-bursting dwarf galaxies, but from the specific perspective provided by large optical/near-IR surveys. I will describe how MPIA has stood at the forefront of the transition from an era of discovery -- which showed where the stars in the universe are and when they formed --  \;to an era of concrete physical insight in to the galaxy evolution process.
