Scientific requirements for a European ELT

Abstract:

The science case for the next generation of Extremely Large Telescopes (ELTs) covers a huge range of astronomical topics and requires a wide range of capabilities. Here we describe top-level requirements on an ELT, which were derived from some of the key science cases identified by European astronomers. After a brief summary of these science cases we discuss the requirements on the ELT system in terms of several parameters, including wavelength range, field of view, image quality etc. We disc...
