Abstract
An Overview of Galactic Chemical Evolution
Galactic Chemical Evolution in the Gaia Era
Brad Gibson
 
University of Hull
The basic precepts underpinning Galactic Chemical Evolution (GCE) are reviewed, from analytical frameworks, to semi-numerical treatments, in addition to fully coupled chemo-dynamics. The emphasis of the review will be upon identifying the outstanding problems driving the field, and the potential observational constraints to be provided by Gaia and its complementary ground-based programmes, which should constrain and shape the search for the solutions to these problems.
