VUDS: The VIMOS Ultra Deep Survey2020.02.13 13:08 - admin-bp4
The VIMOS Ultra Deep Survey (VUDS) is a spectroscopic redshift survey of ~10.000 very faint galaxies selected using a combination of photometric redshifts and color properties. This allowed observations of galaxies at a very early stages of their formation and evolution – redshift range 2 < z ≲ 6. Additionally the survey covers big area of 1 deg2 separated between three independent fields: COSMOS, ESDFS and VVDS-02h – mitigating cosmic variance effects
This unprecedented large high-redshift spectroscopic survey allows to accurately study:
The evolution of the global star formation rate and build up of the mass function for galaxies with different properties.
Clustering of galaxies and the mass growth of underlying dark matter halos at the early stages of the universe evolution
Contribution of mergers to the mass growth of galaxies
Properties of a very young galaxies
and many more
In BP4 department Anna Durkalec use VUDS survey to study galaxy clustering in the Halo Occupation Distribution model (HOD) framework.
