Welcome to Aachen and to the First European Simulation Congress ESC83, a triennial international conference jointly promoted by ASIM/GI, DBSS, SIMS and UKSC. ESC83 is organized by ASIM/GI,. supported by SCS and IMACS, and sponsored by NGI (section for simulation). It takes place at the Karman Auditorium of the Aachen Technical Univer sity, FRG. The aim of ESC83 is to cover all aspects of modeling and simulation in theory and practice, to promote the exchange of knowlewdge and experience between different international research groups in this field, and to strengthen the international contact between developers and users of modeling and simulation techniques. On the occasion of the Congress people of scientific and engineering disciplines will meet to discuss the state of the art and future activities and developments. A large number of contributed papers has been strictly examined and selected by the Scientific Committee to guarantee a high international standard. The book contains the accepted papers that will be presented at the Congress. The papers have been classified according to the following keywords.

The formation of galaxies is one of the major unresolved problems in cosmology, and provides one of the greatest challenges. New generations of telescopes and detectors are producing data that probe the Universe to unsurpassed depths. Understanding these data requires an amalgam of astronomical specialties that comprise, amongst others, star formation, interstellar matter, radio galaxies, X-ray clusters, quasars, inflationary cosmology and the cosmic microwave background. The topics chosen for this school represent diverse areas of astrophysics and cosmology and include: an in-depth overview of the revolution in extragalactic X-ray astronomy triggered by the ROSAT satellite; the current status of the cosmic microwave background; star formation in galaxies and galaxy evolution; inflation and the early universe; the connection between intergalactic clouds seen in absorption towards quasars and forming galaxies; a review of the thermal history of the cosmological gas and galaxy formation.
