We study the evolution of the scaling relations that compare the effective density (Sigma(e), r 9.6 -9.3M(circle dot) kpc(-2), allowing the most efficient identification of compact SFGs and quiescent galaxies at every redshift. 
The evolution of compact massive quiescent and star-forming galaxies derived from the Re–Rh and Mstar–Mh relations
The mean size ( effective radius Re) of Massive Galaxies (MGs, Mstar > 1011.2M ) is observed to increase steadily with cosmic time. It is still unclear whether this trend originates from the sizeExpand

Connecting Compact Star-forming and Extended Star-forming Galaxies at Low Redshift: Implications for Galaxy Compaction and Quenching
Previous findings show that the existence of dense cores or bulges is the prerequisite for quenching a galaxy, leading to a proposed two-step quenching scenario: compaction and quenching. In thisExpand

Extended star-forming regions within galaxies in a dense proto-cluster core at z = 2.53†
At z ∼ 2, star formation activity is thought to be high even in high-density environments such as galaxy clusters and proto-clusters. One of the critical but outstanding issues is if the structuralExpand
