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 galaxies. Recently, we have introduced a sample of rare, nearby (z < 0.3) starburst galaxies that appear to be good analogs of LBGs. These “Lyman break analogs” (LBAs) provide an excellent training set for understanding starbursts at different redshifts. We present an application of this by comparing the…

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
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
Establishing an analogue population for the most distant galaxies
Lyman break analogues (LBAs) are local galaxies selected to match a more distant (usually z ∼ 3) galaxy population in luminosity, UV-spectral slope and physical characteristics, and so provide an
EVIDENCE FOR BLACK HOLE GROWTH IN LOCAL ANALOGS TO LYMAN BREAK GALAXIES
We have used XMM-Newton to observe six Lyman break analogs (LBAs): members of the rare population of local galaxies that have properties that are very similar to distant Lyman break galaxies. Our six

Our knowledge of how X-ray emission scales with star formation at the earliest times in the universe relies on studies of very distant Lyman break galaxies (LBGs). In this paper, we study the
