The Downfall of Massive Star-Forming Galaxies During the Last \(10\,\mathrm{Gyr}\)

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


In this chapter I discuss in more detail one of the observation that was reported in Chap.  2 (Schreiber et al, A&A, 575:A74 2015). By measuring the correlation between the \(\mathrm{SFR}\) and the stellar mass (\(M_*\)) (a.k.a. the Main Sequence) of a mass-complete sample of galaxies, I found that the slope of the correlation was evolving with both redshift and stellar mass.


Star Formation Main Sequence Stellar Mass Star Formation Rate Initial Mass Function
