Star formation rate (SFR), metallicity and stellar mass are within the important parameters of star--forming galaxies that characterize their formation and evolution. They are known to be related to each other at low and high redshift in the mass--metallicity, mass--SFR, and metallicity--SFR relations. In this work we demonstrate the existence of a plane in the 3D space defined by the axes SFR [log(SFR)(M_sun yr^-1)], gas metallicity [12+log(O/H)], and stellar mass [log(M_star/M_sun)] of star…

Scaling relations of metallicity, stellar mass and star formation rate in metal‐poor starbursts – I. A Fundamental Plane
Most galaxies follow well-defined scaling relations of metallicity (O/H), star formation rate (SFR), and stellar mass (Mstar). However, low-metallicity starbursts, rare in the Local Universe but more
Coevolution of metallicity and star formation in galaxies to z=3.7: I. A fundamental plane
With the aim of understanding the coevolution of star formation rate (SFR), stellar mass (M*), and oxygen abundance (O/H) in galaxies up to redshift z ≃ 3.7, we have compiled the largest available
DISSECTING THE STELLAR-MASS-SFR CORRELATION IN z = 1 STAR-FORMING DISK GALAXIES
Using a mass-limited sample of 24 μm detected, star-forming galaxies at 0.5 < z < 1.3, we study the mass-star formation rate (SFR) correlation and its tightness. The correlation is well defined (σ =
Metal-poor, Strongly Star-forming Galaxies in the DEEP2 Survey: The Relationship between Stellar Mass, Temperature-based Metallicity, and Star Formation Rate
We report on the discovery of 28 redshift (z) approximately 0.8 metal-poor galaxies in DEEP2. These galaxies were selected for their detection of the weak [O (sub III)] lambda 4363 emission line,
GALAXY MASS, METALLICITY, RADIUS, AND STAR FORMATION RATES
Working with 108,786 Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) low-redshift galaxies, we have examined the relation between galaxy mass, metallicity, radius, and star formation rates (SFRs) primarily in the
Scaling relations of metallicity, stellar mass and star formation rate in metal-poor starbursts — II. Theoretical models
Scaling relations of metallicity (O/H), star formation rate (SFR) and stellar mass (Mstar) give important insight on galaxy evolution. They are obeyed by most galaxies in the Local Universe and also
The Evolving Interstellar Medium of Star-forming Galaxies since z = 2 as Probed by Their Infrared Spectral Energy Distributions
Using data from the mid-infrared to millimeter wavelengths for individual galaxies and for stacked ensembles at 0.5 1012 L ☉). For galaxies within the MS, we show that the variations of specific star
Dilution in elliptical galaxies: implications for the relation between metallicity, stellar mass and star formation rate
We investigate whether gradual dilution of the gas in some elliptical galaxies is the cause of a positive correlation between star formation rate (SFR) and gas-phase metallicity (Zg) at high stellar
Origin of the Galaxy Mass-Metallicity-Star-Formation Relation
We describe an equilibrium model that links the metallicity of low-redshift galaxies to stellar evolution models. It enables the testing of different stellar initial mass functions and metal yields
The Origin of the Relation between Metallicity and Size in Star-forming Galaxies
For the same stellar mass, physically smaller star-forming galaxies are also metal richer (Ellison et al. 2008). What causes the relation remains unclear. The central star-forming galaxies in the
