Six constraints (or inputs) from the northern HDF for theoretical galaxy formation models

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

Six constraints on models of galaxy formation are presented. Two constraints pertain to the choice between hierarchical formation and passive evolution. Three constraints pertain to the luminosity function and its evolution and a final constraint addresses the specific star formation intensity distribution function. All of the constraints result from observations in the NHDF.
