We present the results of NICMOS imaging of a sample of 16 high mass passively evolving galaxies with 1.3 < z < 2, taken primarily from the Gemini Deep Deep Survey. Around 80% of galaxies in our sample have spectra dominated by stars with ages 1 Gyr. Our rest-frame R-band images show that most of these objects have compact regular morphologies which follow(More)
Observations of star formation and kinematics in early galaxies at high spatial and spectral resolution have shown that two-thirds are massive rotating disk galaxies, with the remainder being less massive non-rotating objects. The line-of-sight-averaged velocity dispersions are typically five times higher than in today's disk galaxies. This suggests that(More)
