AMAZE - I. The evolution of the mass–metallicity relation at z $>$ 3
We present initial results of an ESO-VLT large programme (AMAZE) aimed at determining the evolution of the mass-metallicity relation at z > 3 by means of deep near-IR spectroscopy. Gas metallicitiesExpand

The Lesser Role of Starbursts in Star Formation at z = 2
Two main modes of star formation are know to control the growth of galaxies: a relatively steady one in disk-like galaxies, defining a tight star formation rate (SFR)-stellar mass sequence, and aExpand

The Galaxy Mass Function up to z=4 in the GOODS-MUSIC sample: into the epoch of formation of massive galaxies ⋆
Aims. The goal of this work is to measure the evolution of the Galaxy Stellar Mass Function and of the resulting Stellar Mass Density up to redshift $\simeq$4, in order to study the assembly ofExpand

Spectroscopic confirmation of z~7 LBGs: probing the earliest galaxies and the epoch of reionization
We present the final results from our ultra-deep spectroscopic campaign with FORS2 at the ESO/VLT for the confirmation of z~7 "z--band dropout" candidates selected from our VLT/Hawk-I imaging surveyExpand

Measuring the Redshift Evolution of Clustering: the Hubble Deep Field South
ABSTRA C T We present an analysis of the evolution of galaxy clustering in the redshift interval 0 # z # 4:5 in the Hubble Deep Field South (HDF-South). The HST optical data are combined withExpand

The mean star formation rate of X-ray selected active galaxies and its evolution from z~2.5: results from PEP-Herschel
We study relationships between star-formation rate (SFR) and the accretion luminosity and nuclear obscuration of X-ray selected active galactic nuclei (AGNs) using a combination of deep far-infraredExpand

Unveiling Obscured Accretion in the Chandra Deep Field-South
We make use of deep HST, VLT, Spitzer, and Chandra data on the Chandra Deep Field-South to constrain the number of Compton-thick AGNs in this field. We show that sources with high 24 μm-to-opticalExpand

SPECTROSCOPIC CONFIRMATION OF TWO LYMAN BREAK GALAXIES AT REDSHIFT BEYOND 7
We report the spectroscopic confirmation of two Lyman break galaxies at redshift >7. The galaxies were observed as part of an ultra-deep spectroscopic campaign with FORS2 at the ESO/VLT for theExpand

ALMA constraints on the faint millimetre source number counts and their contribution to the cosmic infrared background
We have analysed 18 ALMA continuum maps in Bands 6 and 7, with rms down to 7.8 μJy, to derive differential number counts down to 60 μJy and 100 μJy at λ = 1.3 mm and λ = 1.1 mm, respectively.Expand
