Recently, a number of possible young globular clusters (GCs) have been found in some merging/interacting galaxies or starburst galaxies. On the other hand, it is well known that GCs are numerous in giant elliptical galaxies many of which are thought to be formed via major merger of galaxies. These facts lead us to a thought that the formation process of GCs could accompany galaxy – galaxy interaction followed by starburst. The archetypical starburst galaxy M82 is an ideal target to study the relation between galaxy interaction, starburst, and GC formation.
