epoch of galaxy formation
(epoch of galaxy assembly)
(before z=1, when many galaxies formed)
The epoch of galaxy formation (or epoch of galaxy assembly)
is a term for the time interval
when many galaxies formed, an area of current study.
Current surveys have uncovered many galaxies with
a redshift of more than 1, at peak star-formation epoch
and before, to redshift in the 4-6 range depending on the author.
The Lambda-CDM model and simulations are used to develop theories.
