The research topics of GAPHE

The study of the properties of massive stars is crucial for the understanding of the evolution and the dynamics of galaxies, reason why GAPHE devotes an important amount of efforts to a multi-wavelength observational investigation of those objects. The research topics are thus:

These activities are presented in dedicated webpages starting with an Introduction.

In order to perform their observational campaigns, the GAPHE researchers regularly travel to observatories in France (Haute Provence Observatory), in Chile (European Southern Observatory : La Silla and Paranal), and in Mexico (el TIGRE). They also make regular use of space-borne observatories, particularly those of the European Space Agency. Many collaborations exist between GAPHE and groups in Belgium and in foreign countries. Furthermore the GAPHE members regularly participate to specific international colloquia and symposia where speciallists of the field meet.
