Large-scale gas flows in the Local Group
The characterization of large-scale gas-circulation processes in the cosmological environment of galaxies is of fundamental importance to understand galaxy evolution and cosmological structure formation. The Local Group represents an importanttest bench to investigate these processes with very high accuracy and spatial resolution based on large observational data sets. In this talk, I will review the various gas components in the circumgalactic media of MW and M31 and in the LG intragroup medium and discuss their chemical composition, kinematics, and mass-flow rates in the context of the on-going formation of the MW and Local Group. Recent results from our observational surveys with HST and constrained cosmological MHD simulations will be presented.
