Lyman Break Galaxies at z>4 and the Evolution of the UV Luminosity Density at High Redshift
We present initial results of a survey for star-forming galaxies in the redshift range 3.8 z 4.5. This sample consists of a photometric catalog of 244 galaxies culled from a total solid angle of 0.23
The Mass-Metallicity Relation at z≳2*
We use a sample of 87 rest-frame UV-selected star-forming galaxies with mean spectroscopic redshift z = 2.26 ± 0.17 to study the correlation between metallicity and stellar mass at high redshift.
Rest-Frame Ultraviolet Spectra of z ∼ 3 Lyman Break Galaxies*
We present the results of a systematic study of the rest-frame UV spectroscopic properties of Lyman break galaxies (LBGs). The database of almost 1000 LBG spectra proves useful for constructing high
Lyman Break Galaxies at Redshift z ~ 3: Survey Description and Full Data Set*
We present the basic data for a large ground-based spectroscopic survey for z ~ 3 Lyman break galaxies (LBGs), photometrically selected using rest-UV colors from very deep images in 17 high Galactic
The Stellar, Gas, and Dynamical Masses of Star-forming Galaxies at z ~ 2
We present analysis of the near-infrared spectra of 114 rest-frame UV-selected star-forming galaxies at z ~ 2. By combining the Hα spectra with photometric measurements from observed 0.3-8 μm, we
A Large Structure of Galaxies at Redshift z ~ 3 and Its Cosmological Implications*
We report the discovery of a highly significant concentration of galaxies at a redshift of z = 3.090. The structure is evident in a redshift histogram of photometrically selected Lyman-break objects
Lyman Alpha Imaging of a Proto-Cluster Region at =3.09
We present very deep imaging observations, through a narrow-band filter tuned to Lyman alpha at , of a volume containing a significant over-density of galaxies at this redshift previously discovered
The Rest-Frame Optical Properties of z 3 Galaxies
We present the results of a near-infrared imaging survey of z ~ 3 Lyman break galaxies (LBGs). The survey covers a total of 30 arcmin2 and includes 118 photometrically selected LBGs with Ks-band
The redshift interval 1.4 z 2.5 has been described by some as the "redshift desert" because of historical difficulties in spectroscopically identifying galaxies in that range. In fact, galaxies can
Hα Observations of a Large Sample of Galaxies at z ~ 2: Implications for Star Formation in High-Redshift Galaxies
Using Hα spectra of 114 rest-frame UV-selected galaxies at z ~ 2, we compare inferred star formation rates (SFRs) with those determined from the UV continuum luminosity. After correcting for
