Distribution of Stars

  1. Feb 13, 2009 #1
    I'm quite interested in finding out the % distribution of stars (by type, viz. O,B,..,M), a) within our galaxy and b) within other galaxy types (ex. globular, etc) - and how these distributions change with time.

    Can anyone sate my curiosity (or point me in the right direction) ?

    Thanks mgb_phys for you input, but that's not exactly what I was looking for.

    I would like to know the particular structures of galaxies, how they evolve and how they relate to other types during their period of evolution.
