Based on simple assumptions-re=f(M*)-we find no significant differences in half-light radii (re) between equal-mass cluster or field systems. More complex analyses --re=f(M*,U-V,n,z,Σ)-- reveal local density (Σ) to induce only a 7%±3% (95% confidence) reduction in re beyond what can be accounted for by U-V color, Sersic index (n), and redshift (z) effects. Almost any size difference between galaxies in high- and low-density regions is thus attributable to their different distributions in properties other than environment. Indeed, we find a clear color-re correlation in low-mass passive cluster galaxies (logM*/M<9.8) such that bluer systems have larger radii, with the bluest having sizes consistent with equal-mass star-forming galaxies. We take this as evidence that large-re low-mass passive cluster galaxies are recently acquired systems that have been environmentally quenched without significant structural transformation (e.g., by ram pressure stripping or starvation). Conversely, ∼20% of small-re low-mass passive cluster galaxies appear to have been in place since z≳3. Given the consistency of the small-re galaxies' stellar surface densities (and even colors) with those of systems more than ten times as massive, our findings suggest that clusters mark places where galaxy evolution is accelerated for an ancient base population spanning most masses, with late-time additions quenched by environment-specific mechanisms mainly restricted to the lowest masses. Description: We base our analysis on Hubble Frontier Fields (HFF; Lotz+ 2017ApJ...837...97L) imaging and Grism Survey from Space (GLASS; Schmidt+ 2014ApJ...782L..36S; Treu+, 2015, J/ApJ/812/114) HST spectroscopy for the first four HFF clusters with complete data: Abell2744 (z=0.308), MACS0416 (0.396), MACS0717 (0.548), and MACS1149 (0.544). HFF imaging spans ACS F435/606/814W through WFC3IR F105/125/140/160W filters (seven bands). Our final catalog consists of 3948 galaxies, with 2200 in clusters and 1748 in field environments. A total of 298 have ground-based and 168 have GLASS spectroscopic redshifts. File Summary:

Note (1): ID as follows: 1 = Abell2744CLS (z=0.308), 2 = MACS0416CLS (MCS J0416.1-2403 in Simbad; z=0.396) 3 = MACS0717CLS (MCS J0717.5+3745 in Simbad; z=0.548) 4 = MACS1149CLS (MCS J1149.5+2223 in Simbad; z=0.544) 5 = Abell2744PR1, 6 = MACS0416PR1, 7 = MACS0717PR1, 8 = MACS1149PR1, 99 = the eXtreme Deep Field (XDF; Illingworth+ 2013ApJS..209....6I). Both Hubble Frontier Fields (HFF) and Grism Survey from Space (GLASS) programs use a parallel strategy where HST WFC3IR and ACS are exposed simultaneously so that the former falls on the cluster core ("CLS") and the latter on a low-density infall/field region ("PR1"). Note (2): zbest is ground-based spectroscopic redshift (from Owers+, 2011, J/ApJ/728/27; Ebeling+, 2014ApJ...781L..40E; Balestra+, 2015, J/ApJS/224/33) if available, implemented with GLASS grism redshift, and seven-band photometric-redshift derived by EAZY for else. All PR1 redshifts are photometric (see Section 2.3). Note (3): F160W-band Auto magnitude derived by SExtractor. Note (4): Visual inspection flag for sources 2σ above/below the size-mass relation for each population.
