We report on the results of Hubble Space Telescope optical and UV imaging, Spitzer mid-IR photometry, and optical spectroscopy of a sample of 30 low-redshift (z ∼ 0.1 to 0.3) galaxies chosen from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and Galaxy Evolution Explorer surveys to be accurate local analogs of the high-redshift Lyman break galaxies. The Lyman break analogs (LBAs) are similar in stellar mass, metallicity, dust extinction, star formation rate (SFR), physical size, and gas velocity dispersion… 
Molecular gas properties of UV-bright star-forming galaxies at low redshift
Lyman break analogues (LBAs) are a population of star-forming galaxies at low redshift (z ∼ 0.2) selected in the ultraviolet (UV). These objects present higher star formation rates and lower dust
LOCAL ANALOGS FOR HIGH-REDSHIFT GALAXIES: RESEMBLING THE PHYSICAL CONDITIONS OF THE INTERSTELLAR MEDIUM IN HIGH-REDSHIFT GALAXIES
We present a sample of local analogs for high-redshift galaxies selected in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). The physical conditions of the interstellar medium (ISM) in these local analogs
DUST ATTENUATION IN UV-SELECTED STARBURSTS AT HIGH REDSHIFT AND THEIR LOCAL COUNTERPARTS: IMPLICATIONS FOR THE COSMIC STAR FORMATION RATE DENSITY
We present a new analysis of the dust obscuration in starburst galaxies at low and high redshifts. This study is motivated by our unique sample of the most extreme UV-selected starburst galaxies in
OBSERVATIONS OF STARBURST GALAXIES WITH FAR-ULTRAVIOLET SPECTROGRAPHIC EXPLORER: GALACTIC FEEDBACK IN THE LOCAL UNIVERSE
We have analyzed FUSE (905–1187 Å) spectra of a sample of 16 local starburst galaxies. These galaxies cover almost three orders of magnitude in star-formation rates and over two orders of magnitude
Lyman Break Analogs: Constraints on the Formation of Extreme Starbursts at Low and High Redshift
Abstract Lyman Break Analogs (LBAs), characterized by high far-UV luminosities and surface brightnesses as detected by GALEX, are intensely star-forming galaxies in the low-redshift universe (z ~
MORPHOLOGIES OF LOCAL LYMAN BREAK GALAXY ANALOGS. II. A COMPARISON WITH GALAXIES AT z ≃ 2–4 IN ACS AND WFC3 IMAGES OF THE HUBBLE ULTRA DEEP FIELD
Previous work has shown that Lyman break galaxies (LBGs) display a range in structures (from single and compact to more clumpy and extended) that is different from typical local star-forming
Hα and UV luminosities and star formation rates in a large sample of luminous compact galaxies
We present the results of a statistical study of the star formation rates (SFR) derived from the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) observations in the ultraviolet continuum and in the Hα emission
The Recent Burstiness of Star Formation in Galaxies at z ∼ 4.5 from Hα Measurements
The redshift range z = 4–6 marks a transition phase between primordial and mature galaxy formation in which galaxies considerably increase their stellar mass, metallicity, and dust content. The study
Starburst galaxies in the COSMOS field: clumpy star-formation at redshift 0 < z < 0.5
At high redshift, starburst galaxies present irregular morphologies, with 10-20\%\ of their star formation occurring in giant clumps. These clumpy galaxies are considered to be the progenitors of
INDIRECT EVIDENCE FOR ESCAPING IONIZING PHOTONS IN LOCAL LYMAN BREAK GALAXY ANALOGS
A population of early star-forming galaxies is the leading candidate for the re-ionization of the universe. It is still unclear, however, what conditions and physical processes would enable a
