The galaxy luminosity-size relation and selection biases in the Hubble Ultra Deep Field
ABSTRACT We use the Hubble Ultra Deep Field to study the galaxy luminosity-size distribution. With a careful analysis of selection effects due to both detection completeness and measurement reliability, we identify bias-free regions in the plane for a series of volume-limited samples. By comparison to a nearby survey also having well-defined selection limits, namely the Millennium Galaxy Catalogue, we present clear evidence for evolution in surface brightness since. Specifically, we demonstrate...[Show more]
