Pathways Through an Eclectic Universe
I review determinations of star formation rate indicators from the ultraviolet to the infrared in the context of their use for galaxies and galaxy surveys. Mid-infrared star formation rate indicators have generated interest in recent years, thanks to Spitzer’s capabilities and the opportunities offered by the upcoming Herschel Space Telescope. I discuss what we have learned in the mid-infrared from studies of local galaxies, combining Spitzer with HST and other data.
