  • OBSERVATIONS have revealed a population of faint blue galaxies1–5 at intermediate redshifts (z≈0.4). These galaxies are present in significant excess relative to what is expected based on observations of local galaxies, which has led some to propose that the discrepancy must be due either to non-standard cosmologies4,6or to the effects of very pronounced galaxy evolution4,7–10. The surveys that define the population of local galaxies are strongly biased against objects of low surface… CONTINUE READING
