The DEEP 3 Galaxy Redshift Survey : the impact of environment on the size evolution of massive early-type galaxies at intermediate redshift †

Using data drawn from the DEEP2 and DEEP3 Galaxy Redshift Surveys, we investigate the relationship between the environment and the structure of galaxies residing on the red sequence at intermediate redshift. Within the massive (10 < log10(M /h−2 M ) < 11) earlytype population at 0.4 < z < 1.2, we find a significant correlation between local galaxy… (More)
