Galactic Astronomy銀河物理学特論 ILecture 3-1: Statistical survey of high-redshift galaxiesSeminar: Steidel et al. 1999, ApJ, 519, 1
Statistical survey for z=3 galaxies was conducted utilizing the fact that ”Lyman limit” comes to the wavelength range between U- and G-band. The success of the survey with spectroscopic confirmation of ~1,000 galaxies at z~3 with Keck telescope established the new method to explore the universe at z>1.

The same U-dropout selection method extended to longer wavelength range to search for galaxies at higher redshift range. G-dropout, B-dropout, V-dropout, i-dropout,,,

Applying the U-dropout method to galaxies at lower redshift range z~3:
In order to select galaxies at z>3, the U-dropout selection criteria was extended to bluer U-G color range. The method is called BM/BX method.

Population of galaxies z~3 which cannot be selected with U-drop LBG method ?:
Large spectroscopic survey revealed a population of galaxies which are at z~3 but cannot be selected with LBG method.

Population of galaxies at z~3 which cannot be selected with U-drop LBG method ?: BzK galaxies
Dropout-selection method can only select galaxies with relatively blue color. More complete sample of galaxies can be made with selecting galaxies using 4000A or Balmer break. Reddening vector is along the tilted lilne.

Due to the SED shape in the FIR wavelength range, the flux in the sub-mm wavelength range does not simply decrease with redshift.
