J/ApJS/122/109      Galaxy structural parameters             (Takamiya+, 1999)

Galaxy structural parameters: star formation rate and evolution with redshift. Takamiya M. <Astrophys. J. Suppl. Ser. 122, 109 (1999)> =1999ApJS..122..109T
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, photometry ; Redshifts Keywords: galaxies: evolution - galaxies: fundamental parameters - galaxies: photometry - galaxies: structure Abstract: The evolution of the structure of galaxies as a function of redshift is investigated using two parameters: the metric radius of the galaxy (Reta) and the power at high spatial frequencies in the disk of the galaxy (chi). A direct comparison is made between nearby (z∼0) and distant (0.2≲z≲1) galaxies by following a fixed range in rest frame wavelengths. The data of the nearby galaxies comprise 136 broadband images at ∼4500 E observed with the 0.9 m telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory (23 galaxies) and selected from the catalog of digital images of Frei et al. (113 galaxies, 1996AJ....111..174F). The high-redshift sample comprises 94 galaxies selected from the Hubble Deep Field (HDF) observations with the Hubble Space Telescope using the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 in four broad bands that range between ∼3000 and ∼9000 E (Williams et al., 1997, Cat. J/AJ/112/1335). File Summary:
