This paper begins a series in which we examine the structures of distant galaxies to directly determine the history of their formation modes. We start this series by examining the structures of zF850LP < 27 galaxies in the Hubble Ultra-Deep field, the deepest high-resolution optical image taken to date. We investigate a few basic features of galaxy structure using this image. These include: (1) The agreement of visual eye-ball classifications and non-parametric quantitative (CAS, Gini/M20… CONTINUE READING
