Abstract: The role of feedback in galaxy formation is reviewed. Feedback occurs via outflows and photoionization produced by massive stars, supernova explosions and tidal interactions between protodisks and dark matter. Feedback may account for the star formation rate in, and sizes of, galactic disks, and the conspiracy between the dark and baryonic matter in galaxies.
