Using Bars as Signposts of Galaxy Evolution at High and Low Redshifts

Abstract

An analysis of the NICMOS Deep Field shows that there is no evidence of a decline in the bar fraction beyond z∼0.7, as previously claimed; both bandshifting and spatial resolution must be taken into account when evaluating the evolution of the bar fraction. Two main caveats of this study were a lack of a proper comparison sample at low redshifts and a… (More)
