We present initial results of a survey for star-forming galaxies in the redshift range 3.8 z 4.5. This sample consists of a photometric catalog of 244 galaxies culled from a total solid angle of 0.23 deg2 to an apparent magnitude of IAB = 25.0. Spectroscopic redshifts in the range 3.61 ? z ? 4.81 have been obtained for 48 of these galaxies; their median redshift is z = 4.13. Selecting these galaxies in a manner entirely analogous to our large survey for Lyman-break galaxies at smaller redshift… 
The Rest-Frame Ultraviolet Luminosity Density of Star-forming Galaxies at Redshifts z > 3.5
We have measured the rest-frame λ ~ 1500 A comoving specific luminosity density of star-forming galaxies at redshift 3.5 < z < 6.5 (Lyman break galaxies [LBGs]) selected from deep, multiband images

We present new measurements of the evolution in the Lyman break galaxy (LBG) population between z ≃ 4 and z ≃ 6. By utilizing the extensive multiwavelength data sets available in the GOODS fields, we
Hα Spectroscopy of Galaxies at z > 2: Kinematics and Star Formation*
We present near-infrared spectroscopy of H? emission lines in a sample of 16 star-forming galaxies at redshifts 2.0 < z < 2.6. Our targets are drawn from a large sample of galaxies photometrically
Evolution in the colors of lyman break galaxies from z ∼ 4 to z ∼ 3
The integrated colors of distant galaxies provide a means for interpreting the properties of their stellar content. Here we use rest-frame UV-to-optical colors to constrain the spectral energy
A physical model for the redshift evolution of high-z Lyman-break galaxies
We present a galaxy formation model to understand the evolution of stellar mass (M*) - UV luminosity relations, stellar mass functions and specific star formation rate (sSFR) of Lyman Break Galaxies
Stellar Populations and Kinematics of Red Galaxies at z > 2 : Implications for the Formation of Massive Galaxies
We recently identified a substantial population of galaxies at z > 2 with comparatively red rest-frame optical colors. These distant red galaxies (DRGs) are efficiently selected by the simple
Discovery of Lyman Break Galaxies at z ~ 7 from the zFourGE Survey
Star-forming galaxies at redshifts z > 6 are likely responsible for the reionization of the universe, and it is important to study the nature of these galaxies. We present three candidates for z ~ 7
Spectroscopy and stellar populations of star-forming galaxies at z ∼ 3 in the Hubble Deep Field - South
We present results of VLT/FORS2 spectroscopy of galaxies at z~3 in the Hubble Deep Field-South (HDF-S). A sample of galaxies was drawn from the photo-z catalogue based on the HST/WFPC2 optical images
The size evolution of high-redshift galaxies
Hubble Space Telescope images of high-redshift galaxies selected via color and photometric redshifts are used to examine the size and axial ratio distribution of galaxies as a function of redshift at

We have carried out a study of the luminosity function (LF) of galaxies in the region of the Hubble Deep Field-North using our very complete redshift catalog. We divide the sample into five redshift
