Multi-Phase Gas Physics in the CGM
I discuss small scale physical processes which affect the formation and survival of warm (T ~ 10^4 K) gas in the CGM, which is crucial for fueling star formation in the host galaxy. In particular, I will discuss thermal instability in the presence of magnetic fields and cosmic rays, and cold gas survival during infall onto the galaxy.
