MASS-METALLICITY RELATION for LOCAL ANALOGS of HIGH-REDSHIFT GALAXIES: IMPLICATIONS for the EVOLUTION of the MASS-METALLICITY RELATIONS

Bian, Fuyan; Kewley, Lisa; Dopita, Michael; Blanc, G. A.

Description

We revisit the evolution of the massmetallicity relation of low- and high-redshift galaxies by using a sample of local analogs of high-redshift galaxies. These analogs share the same location of the UV-selected star-forming galaxies at z ∼ 2 on the [O III]λ5007/Hβ versus [N II]λ6584/Hα nebular emission-line diagnostic (or BPT) diagram. Their physical properties closely resemble those in z ∼ 2 UV-selected star-forming galaxies being characterized, in particular, by high ionization parameters...[Show more]
