The VIMOS VLT Deep Survey. The assembly history of the stellar mass in galaxies: from the young to t
We present a detailed analysis of the Galaxy Stellar Mass Function of galaxies up to z=2.5 as obtained from the VVDS. We estimate the stellar mass from broad-band photometry using 2 different
Further constraints on the evolution of Ks-selected galaxies in the GOODS/CDFS field
We have selected and analysed the properties of a sample of 2905 K-s = 2.5. We also analysed the colours and number density evolution of galaxies with different stellar masses. Within our sample, and
The stellar masses of 25 000 galaxies at 0.2 ≤ z ≤ 1.0 estimated by the COMBO-17 survey
We present an analysis of stellar mass estimates for a sample of 25000 galaxies from the COMBO-17 survey over the interval $0.2 $60\%$) of massive galaxies with $M_* > 10^{11} M_{\odot}$ at all $z <
Old age and supersolar metallicity in a massive z ∼ 1.4 early-type galaxy from VLT/X-Shooter spectroscopy
We present the first estimate of age, stellar metallicity and chemical abundance ratios, for an individual early-type galaxy at high-redshift (z = 1.426) in the COSMOS field. Our analysis is based on
The fraction of quiescent massive galaxies in the early Universe
Aims. We attempt to compile a complete, mass‐selected sample of galaxies with low specific star‐formation rates, and compare t heir properties with theoretical model predictions. Methods. We use the
The Kormendy relation of massive elliptical galaxies at z ~ 1.5: evidence for size evolution
We present the morphological analysis based on HST-NIC2 (0.075 arcsec pixel -1 ) images in the F160W filter of a sample of nine massive field (>10 11 M ⊙ ) galaxies spectroscopically classified as
Spitzer bright ultravista faint sources in cosmos: the contribution to the overall population of massive galaxies at z=3-7
We have analysed a sample of 574 Spitzer 4.5 μm-selected galaxies with [4.5] 24 (AB) over the UltraVISTA ultra-deep COSMOS field. Our aim is to investigate whether these mid-IR bright, near-IR faint
Constraining the star formation and the assembly histories of normal and compact early-type galaxies at 1 < z < 2
We present a study based on a sample of 62 early-type galaxies (ETGs) at 0.9 5. Earlier stars, those formed at zform > 5, are assembled in compact and more massive ( M⊙) ETGs, while stars formed
Searching for massive galaxies at z ≥ 3.5 in GOODS-North
Aims. We constrain the space density and properties of massive galaxy candidates at redshifts of z ≥ 3.5 in the Great Observatories Origin Deep Survey North (GOODS-N) field. By selecting sources in
The properties and evolution of a K-band selected sample of massive galaxies at z∼ 0.4–2 in the Palomar/DEEP2 survey
We present the results of a study on the properties and evolution of massive (M* > 10 11 M⊙) galaxies at z ∼ 0.4-2 utilizing Keck spectroscopy, near-infrared Palomar imaging, and Hubble, Chandra and


Colors and magnitudes predicted for high redshift galaxies
Ultraviolet observations of nearby galaxies with the ANS are used to derive ultraviolet spectra for different galaxy types. These spectra are used with existing visible spectrophotometry to calculate
High-z massive galaxies in the Hubble Deep Field South
A census of massive galaxies at redshift increasingly higher than z ∼ 1 may provide strong constraints for the history of mass assembly and star formation. Here we report the analysis of three

We present a measurement of the evolution of the stellar mass function in four redshift bins at 0.4 0 to estimates obtained similarly at z = 0. We find that the mass-to-light ratios in the K band
Stellar population synthesis at the resolution of 2003
We present a new model for computing the spectral evolution of stellar populations at ages between 1 x 10 5 and 2 x 10 1 0 yr at a resolution of 3 A across the whole wavelength range from 3200 to
Disc galaxies at z = 0 and at high redshift: an explanation of the observed evolution of damped Lya absorption systems
The analysis of disc formation in this paper is based on the White & Rees model, in which disc galaxies form by the continuous cooling and accretion of gas within a merging hierarchy of dark matter
The Star formation history of field galaxies
We develop a method for interpreting faint galaxy data which focuses on the integrated light radiated from the galaxy population as a whole. The emission history of the universe at ultraviolet,

We reconstruct the history of the cosmic star formation in the universe by means of detailed chemical evolution models for galaxies of different morphological types. We consider a picture of coeval
Old galaxies in the young Universe
The spectroscopic and morphological identification of four old, fully assembled, massive spheroidal galaxies at l.6 < z < 1.9, the most distant such objects currently known, shows that the build-up of massive early-type galaxies was much faster in the early Universe than has been expected from theoretical simulations.
