Two-dimensional surface photometry has been performed on a magnitude-limited sample of 46 field galaxies that are classified as ellipticals based on two-dimensional fitting of their luminosity profiles using Hubble Space Telescope imaging. These galaxies are described well by a de Vaucouleurs R1/4 profile. The sample was selected from the combined Canada-France and LDSS redshift surveys and spans the redshift range 0.20<z<1.00. This analysis reveals several clear evolutionary trends. First, the...[Show more]
