    Dwarf galaxies — galaxies of mass less than roughly a billion solar masses — have emerged as key laboratories for testing a number of open questions in astrophysics. This living Collection brings together a series of short and long articles on the science of dwarf galaxies, their properties and their theoretical modelling and simulations to present the current state of knowledge of the field.
