A Deep Multicolor Survey VII . Extremely Red Objects and Galaxy Formation 1

Abstract

Extremely Red Objects (EROs) offer a window to the universe at z ∼ 1 analogous to that provided by the Lyman Break galaxies at z = 3. Passive evolution and hierarchical galaxy formation models make very distinct predictions for the K (2.2μm) surface density of galaxies at z ∼ 1 and EROs are a powerful constraint on these theories. I present a study of nine… (More)
