We study the relation between stellar mass (M *) and star formation rate (SFR) for star-forming galaxies over approximately five decades in stellar mass ( 5.5≲log10(M*/M⊙)≲10.5 ) at z ≈ 3–6.5. This unprecedented coverage has been possible thanks to the joint analysis of blank non-lensed fields (COSMOS/SMUVS) and cluster lensing fields (Hubble Frontier Fields) that allow us to reach very low stellar masses. Previous works have revealed the existence of a clear bimodality in the SFR–M * plane… 
The Black Hole Mass Function across Cosmic Time. II. Heavy Seeds and (Super)Massive Black Holes
This is the second paper in a series aimed at modeling the black hole (BH) mass function from the stellar to the (super)massive regime. In the present work, we focus on (super)massive BHs and provide


The Recent Burstiness of Star Formation in Galaxies at z ∼ 4.5 from Hα Measurements
The redshift range z = 4–6 marks a transition phase between primordial and mature galaxy formation in which galaxies considerably increase their stellar mass, metallicity, and dust content. The study
A study of the gas–star formation relation over cosmic time
We use the first systematic data sets of CO molecular line emission in z∼ 1–3 normal star-forming galaxies (SFGs) for a comparison of the dependence of galaxy-averaged star formation rates on
The star formation main sequence and stellar mass assembly of galaxies in the Illustris simulation
Understanding the physical processes that drive star formation is a key challenge for galaxy formation models. In this paper, we study the tight correlation between the star formation rate (SFR) and
The stellar mass function of star-forming galaxies and the mass-dependent SFR function since z = 2.23 from HiZELS
We explore a large uniformly selected sample of Ha selected star-forming galaxies (SFGs) at z = 0.40, 0.84, 1.47, 2.23 to unveil the evolution of the star formation rate (SFR) function and the
The SFR–M* Correlation Extends to Low Mass at High Redshift
To achieve a fuller understanding of galaxy evolution, SED fitting can be used to recover quantities beyond stellar masses (M*) and star formation rates (SFRs). We use star formation histories (SFHs)
Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): Linking Star Formation Histories and Stellar Mass Growth
We present evidence for stochastic star formation histories in low-mass (M* < 1010 M⊙) galaxies from observations within the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey. For ˜73 000 galaxies between 0.05
Early Low-mass Galaxies and Star-cluster Candidates at z ∼ 6–9 Identified by the Gravitational-lensing Technique and Deep Optical/Near-infrared Imaging
We present very faint dropout galaxies at z ∼ 6−9 with a stellar mass M⋆ down to that are found in deep optical/near-infrared (NIR) images of the full data sets of the Hubble Frontier Fields (HFF)
Using a compilation of 25 studies from the literature, we investigate the evolution of the star-forming galaxy (SFG) main sequence (MS) in stellar mass and star formation rate (SFR) out to z ∼ 6.
Evolution of the specific star formation rate function at z< 1.4 Dissecting the mass-SFR plane in COSMOS and GOODS
The relation between the stellar mass (M⋆) and the star formation rate (SFR) characterizes how the instantaneous star formation is determined by the galaxy past star formation history and by the
Analysis of the SFR - M* plane at z<3: single fitting versus multi-Gaussian decomposition
The analysis of galaxies on the star formation rate - stellar mass (SFR-M*) plane is a powerful diagnostic for galaxy evolution at different cosmic times. We consider a sample of 24463 galaxies from
