Description:
Dwarf galaxies provide opportunities for drawing inferences about the processes in the early universe by observing our "cosmological backyard" -- the Local Group and its vicinity. This special issue of the open-access journal Advances in Astronomy is a snapshot of the current state of the art of dwarf-galaxy cosmology. The issue contains fourteen review papers, and one original research article.
