Galaxy morphology and its evolution over the cosmic epoch hold important clues for understanding the regulation of star formation (SF). However, studying the relationship between morphology and SF has been hindered by the availability of consistent data at different redshifts. Our sample, combining CANDELS (0.8 < z < 2.5) and the GALEX-SDSS-WISE Legacy Catalog (GSWLC; z ∼ 0), has physical parameters derived using consistent SED fitting with flexible dust attenuation laws. We adopt visual… 
Fast, Slow, Early, Late: Quenching Massive Galaxies at z ∼ 0.8
We investigate the stellar populations for a sample of 161 massive, mainly quiescent galaxies at 〈z obs〉 = 0.8 with deep Keck/DEIMOS rest-frame optical spectroscopy (HALO7D survey). With the fully
Low-redshift quasars in the SDSS Stripe 82 – II. Associated companion galaxies and signature of star formation
We present optical spectroscopy of the close companions of 22 low-redshift (z < 0.5) quasars (QSO) selected from a larger sample of QSO in the SDSS Stripe82 region for which both the host galaxy


Interacting galaxies in the IllustrisTNG simulations – II: star formation in the post-merger stage
Galaxy mergers are a major evolutionary transformation whose effects are borne out by a plethora of observations and numerical simulations. However, most previous simulations have used idealized,
Effect of galaxy mergers on star-formation rates
Context. Galaxy mergers and interactions are an integral part of our basic understanding of how galaxies grow and evolve over time. However, the effect that galaxy mergers have on star-formation
The Dust Attenuation Law in Galaxies
Understanding the properties and physical mechanisms that shape dust attenuation curves in galaxies is one of the fundamental questions of extragalactic astrophysics, with a great practical
Mergers, starbursts, and quenching in the simba simulation
We use the simba cosmological galaxy formation simulation to investigate the relationship between major mergers ($\lesssim$4:1), starbursts, and galaxy quenching. Mergers are identified via sudden
Quenching as a Contest between Galaxy Halos and Their Central Black Holes
Existing models of galaxy formation have not yet explained striking correlations between structure and star formation activity in galaxies, notably the sloped and moving boundaries that divide
The Hubble Legacy Fields (HLF-GOODS-S) v1.5 Data Products: Combining 2442 Orbits of GOODS-S/CDF-S Region ACS and WFC3/IR Images
We have submitted to MAST the 1.5 version data release of the Hubble Legacy Fields (HLF) project covering a 25 x 25 arcmin area over the GOODS-S (ECDF-S) region from the HST archival program
The importance of minor-merger-driven star formation and black hole growth in disc galaxies
We use the SDSS Stripe 82 to empirically quantify the stellar-mass and black-hole growth triggered by minor mergers in local spiral (disk) galaxies. Since major mergers destroy disks and create
Galactic stellar and substellar initial mass function
We review recent determinations of the present‐day mass function (PDMF) and initial mass function (IMF) in various components of the Galaxy—disk, spheroid, young, and globular clusters—and in
The VIMOS Ultra-Deep Survey: A major merger origin for the high fraction of galaxies at 2 < z < 6 with two bright clumps
The properties of stellar clumps in star-forming galaxies and their evolution over the redshift range 2 ≲ z ≲ 6 are presented and discussed in the context of the build-up of massive galaxies at early
A contribution of star-forming clumps and accreting satellites to the mass assembly of z ∼ 2 galaxies
We investigate the contribution of clumps and satellites to the galaxy mass assembly. We analysed spatially resolved HubbleSpace Telescope observations (imaging and slitless spectroscopy) of 53
