HISTORY OF GALAXY INTERACTIONS AND THEIR IMPACT ON STAR FORMATION OVER THE LAST 7 Gyr FROM GEMS
We perform a comprehensive estimate of the frequency of galaxy mergers and their impact on star formation over z similar to 0.24-0.80 (lookback time T(b) similar to 3-7 Gyr) using similar to 3600 (MExpand

Bars in Disk-dominated and Bulge-dominated Galaxies at z ~ 0: New Insights from ~3600 SDSS Galaxies
We present a study of large-scale bars in the local universe, based on a large sample of 3692 galaxies, with 18.5 ≤ Mg < − 22.0 mag and redshift 0.01 ≤ z < 0.03, drawn from the Sloan Digitized SkyExpand

Distances, metallicities, and ages of dwarf elliptical galaxies in the virgo cluster from surface brightness fluctuations
We have employed FORS1 and 2 at the Very Large Telescope at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) to acquire deep B and R-band CCD images of 16 dwarf elliptical (dE) galaxies in the direction ofExpand

The STAGES view of red spirals and dusty red galaxies: Mass-dependent quenching of star formation in cluster infall
We investigate the properties of optically passive spirals and dusty red galaxies in the A901/2 cluster complex at redshift ∼0.17 using rest-frame near-ultraviolet–optical spectral energyExpand

Bars In Disk-Dominated And Bulge-Dominated Galaxies At Z Similar To 0: New Insights From Similar To 3600 SDSS Galaxies
We present a study of large-scale bars in the local universe, based on a large sample of 3692 galaxies, with 18.5 <= M-g < -22.0 mag and redshift 0.01 <= z < 0.03, drawn from the Sloan Digitized SkyExpand

Less than 10 percent of star formation in z ∼ 0.6 massive galaxies is triggered by major interactions
Both observations and simulations show that major tidal interactions or mergers between gas-rich galaxies can lead to intense bursts of star formation. Yet, the average enhancement in star formationExpand

OBSCURED STAR FORMATION IN INTERMEDIATE-DENSITY ENVIRONMENTS: A SPITZER STUDY OF THE ABELL 901/902 SUPERCLUSTER
We explore the amount of obscured star formation as a function of environment in the Abell 901/902 (A901/902) supercluster at z = 0.165 in conjunction with a field sample drawn from the A901 and CDFSExpand

Frequency and properties of bars in cluster and field galaxies at intermediate redshifts
We present a study of large-scale bars in field and cluster environments out to redshifts of ~0.8 using a final sample of 945 moderately inclined disk galaxies drawn from the EDisCS project. WeExpand
