Intense starbursts at z∼5: First significant stellar mass assembly in the progenitors of present-day spheroids

Abstract:

High redshift galaxies play a key role in our developing understanding of galaxy formation and evolution. Since such galaxies are being studied within a Gyr of the big bang, they provide a unique probe of the physics of one of the first generations of large-scale star-formation. We have performed a complete statistical study of the physical properties of a robust sample of z∼5 UV luminous galaxies selected using the Lyman-break technique. The characteristic properties of this sample differ fr...
