We study the relations between stellar mass, star formation history, size and internal structure for a complete sample of 122 808 galaxies drawn from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. We show that low-redshift galaxies divide into two distinct families at a stellar mass of 3 x 10 1 0 M O .. Lower-mass galaxies have young stellar populations, low surface mass densities and the low concentrations typical of discs. Their star formation histories are more strongly correlated with surface mass density… 
The star formation history of CALIFA galaxies: Radial structures
We have studied the radial structure of the stellar mass surface density (μ∗) and stellar population age as a function of the total stellar mass and morphology for a sample of 107 galaxies from the
The environmental dependence of the relations between stellar mass, structure, star formation and nuclear activity in galaxies
We use a complete sample of galaxies drawn from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey to study how structure, star formation and nuclear activity depend on local density and on stellar mass. Local density is
Stellar masses and star formation histories for 105 galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
We develop a new method to constrain the star formation histories, dust attenuation and stellar masses of galaxies. It is based on two stellar absorption-line indices, the 4000-A break strength and
A LINK BETWEEN STAR FORMATION QUENCHING AND INNER STELLAR MASS DENSITY IN SLOAN DIGITAL SKY SURVEY CENTRAL GALAXIES
We study the correlation between galaxy structure and the quenching of star formation using a sample of Sloan Digital Sky Survey central galaxies with stellar masses 9.75 < log M */M ? < 11.25 and
Spatially resolved star formation histories of nearby galaxies: evidence for episodic star formation in discs
Using long-slit spectroscopy from Moran et al. (2012) we constrain the radial dependence of the recent star formation histories of nearby galaxies with stellar masses greater than 10 10 M⊙. By
The evolving relations between size, mass, surface density, and star formation in 3x10^4 galaxies since z=2
The presence of massive, compact, quiescent galaxies at z>2 presents a major challenge for theoretical models of galaxy formation and evolution. Using one of the deepest large public near-IR surveys
Gas infall and stochastic star formation in galaxies in the local universe
We study the recent star formation histories of local galaxies by analysing the scatter in their colours and spectral properties. We present evidence that the distribution of star forma- tion
The star formation rate and stellar content contributions of morphological components in the EAGLE simulations
The Hubble sequence provides a useful classification of galaxy morphology at low redshift. However, morphologies are not static, but rather evolve as the growth of structure proceeds through mergers,
An Integrated Picture of Star Formation, Metallicity Evolution, and Galactic Stellar Mass Assembly*
We present an integrated study of star formation and galactic stellar mass assembly from -->z = 0.05 to 1.5 and galactic metallicity evolution from -->z = 0.05 to 0.9 using a very large and highly
Connecting Galaxies, Halos, and Star Formation Rates Across Cosmic Time
A simple, observationally motivated model is presented for understanding how halo masses, galaxy stellar masses, and star formation rates are related, and how these relations evolve with time. The
