The First Stars and Galaxies: The Run-up to the JWST

Volker Bromm (University of Texas at Austin)

How and when did the cosmic dark ages end? I present simulations of the formation of the first stars and galaxies, discuss their feedback on the intergalactic medium, and describe ways to probe their signature with next generation facilities. I will identify the key processes and outline the major remaining uncertainties.
