Galaxy interactions/mergers have been shown to dominate the population of IR-luminous galaxies (L_(IR) ≳ 10^(11.6) L_☉) in the local universe (z ≾ 0.25). Recent studies based on the relation between galaxies' star formation rates and stellar mass (the SFR-M_* relation or the "galaxy main sequence") have suggested that galaxy interaction/mergers may only become significant when galaxies fall well above the galaxy main sequence. Since the typical SFR at a given M_* increases with redshift, the… Expand
Galaxy Mergers up to Z < 2.5. I. The Star Formation Properties of Merging Galaxies at Separations of 3–15 kpc
We present a study of the influence of galaxy mergers on star formation at 0.3<z<2.5. Major mergers are selected from the CANDELS/3D-HST catalog using a peak-finding algorithm. Mergers have projectedExpand
