Evolution of the incidence of massive galaxy–galaxy pairs from z = 3 to z ∼ 0. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 475(2), doi:10.1093/mnras/stx3260

The rate of major galaxy–galaxy merging is theoretically predicted to steadily increase with redshift during the peak epoch of massive galaxy development (1 ≤ z ≤ 3). We use close-pair statistics to objectively study the incidence of massive galaxies... Read More about Major merging history in CANDELS. I.

Journal Article
De Barros, S., Pentericci, L., Vanzella, E., Castellano, M., Fontana, A., Grazian, A., …Maiolino, R. (2017). VLT/FORS2 view at z ~ 6: Lyman-α emitter fraction and galaxy physical properties at the edge of the epoch of cosmic reionization. Astronomy and Astrophysics, 608, https://doi.org/10.1051/0004-6361/201731476

The fraction of Lyman-α emitters (LAEs) among the galaxy population has been found to increase from z ~ 0 to z ~ 6 and drop dramatically at z> 6. This drop has been interpreted as an effect of an increasingly neutral intergalactic medium (IGM) with i...
