Title: Mining the Treasuries: Dwarf Galaxies at 0.5 < z < 1 as Lynchpins for Galaxy Formation and Feedback
Cycle: 22

Abstract
Distant dwarf galaxies {DGs}, with stellar masses 100--1000 times less than that of our Milky Way, are lynchpins for understanding galaxy formation and feedback. Like gems, they are small, hard-to-find, but precious by being the most sensitive probes of both the macro-physics of dark matter halos and the micro-physics of the feedback and regulation of star formation. We propose to undertake a comprehensive study of dwarf galaxies at 0.5
