Some Remarks About Modelling the Chemical Evolution of Galaxies
Understanding galaxies at large redshift requires somehow to understand their evolution, and models of galactic chemical evolution are among the best tools in the process of such understanding. In fact, they provide useful information on some of the most significant quantities regulating the evolution of galaxies of the various morphological types: initial mass function (IMF), star formation rate (SFR), stellar nucleosynthesis, etc. However, there are so many parameters involved in the chemical evolution models that a special care is necessary not only in computing the models but also in interpreting their results.
