Abstract

Using very deep near-infrared VLT/ISAAC and optical HST/WFPC2 imaging in the Hubble Deep Field South and the field around the cluster MS1054-03, we study the rest-frame ultraviolet-to-optical colors and magnitudes of galaxies to redshift z ∼ 3. Whereas the present-day color-magnitude distribution shows a prominent red and blue sequence of galaxies, we find… (More)
