Star formation and molecular gas over cosmic time

Abstract:

Recent observations have revealed the existence of a 'main sequence' of star-forming galaxies out to high redshift. While the majority of star-forming galaxies are observed to be close to this relation between star formation rate (SFR) and stellar mass, a smaller subset of the population - so-called 'starbursts' - displays specific star-formation rates and star-formation efficiencies that exceed those of normal (main-sequence) galaxies by up to an order of magnitude. A large degree of homogen...
