Ultraviolet-luminous galaxies (UVLGs) have been identified as intensely star-forming nearby galaxies. A subset of these, the supercompact UVLGs, are believed to be local analogs of high-redshift Lyman break galaxies. Here we investigate the radio continuum properties of this important population for the first time. We have observed 42 supercompact UVLGs with the VLA, all of which have extensive coverage in the UV/optical by GALEX and SDSS. Our analysis includes comparison samples of… 
Molecular gas properties of UV-bright star-forming galaxies at low redshift
Lyman break analogues (LBAs) are a population of star-forming galaxies at low redshift (z ∼ 0.2) selected in the ultraviolet (UV). These objects present higher star formation rates and lower dust

Hubble Space Telescope Morphologies of Local Lyman Break Galaxy Analogs. I. Evidence for Starbursts Triggered by Merging

Lyman Break Analogs: Constraints on the Formation of Extreme Starbursts at Low and High Redshift
Abstract Lyman Break Analogs (LBAs), characterized by high far-UV luminosities and surface brightnesses as detected by GALEX, are intensely star-forming galaxies in the low-redshift universe (z ~

The ultraviolet (UV) catalog of nearby galaxies compiled by Gil de Paz et al. presents the integrated photometry and surface brightness profiles for 1034 nearby galaxies observed by GALEX. We provide
Studying large- and small-scale environments of ultraviolet luminous galaxies
Studying the environments of 0.4 < z < 1.2 ultraviolet (UV)-selected galaxies, as examples of extreme star-forming galaxies (with star formation rates (SFRs) in the range of 3–30 M☉ yr−1), we explore
Population synthesis modelling of luminous infrared galaxies at intermediate redshift
Context. Luminous InfraRed Galaxies (LIRGs) are particularly important for studying the build-up of the stellar mass from z = 1 to z = 0, and for determining physical properties of these objects at
