About the Edition

Progress in the study of galaxy evolution has traditionally followed from improvements in spectroscopic measurement techniques and subsequent groundbreaking surveys. The advent of large format CCD detectors, coupled with the demonstrated success of the photometric redshift method, has given rise to a new, potentially very powerful alternative. It has, in fact, motivated the present detailed investigation of the potential of photometric redshift surveys to complement, or in some cases, supersede traditional spectroscopic surveys in galaxy evolution studies.This Thesis describes a new deep, wide-field, multi-colour imaging survey, 10 times deeper and 30 times larger than its spectroscopic predecessor, the Canada-France Redshift Survey (CFRS). Highly accurate photometric redshifts, calibrated using hundreds of spectroscopic CFRS galaxies, were measured for tens of thousands of objects, with typical dispersions of only sigma/(1 + z) ≲ 0.06 to IAB = 24 for z ≤ 1.3.For the 1- and 2-point statistics of the galaxy distribution studied in this Thesis, the measurement accuracy is limited not by the photometric redshift error, but rather by the effect of cosmic variance, whose contribution to the total error budget is dominant. Therefore, future studies will be well served by adopting the photometric redshift approach, the efficiency of which will enable them to survey the hundreds or thousands of square degrees required to obtain a fair sample of the Universe.We measure the evolution of galaxy correlations with redshift, a primary observable of the structure formation process, correcting for the dilutive effect of photometric redshift errors on the clustering signal. The high z ∼ 3 correlation amplitude seen in this work provides compelling evidence for the biased galaxy formation paradigm. The measured galaxy correlations from 0 ≲ z ≲ 3 are in excellent agreement with the findings of the largest, state-of-the-art spectroscopic studies.A new Bayesian method to measure the galaxy redshift distribution is developed. The accuracy of the method, which incorporates the full redshift likelihood function of each galaxy in an iterative analysis, is demonstrated in extensive Monte Carlo simulations. IAB and RAB redshift distributions, along with the run of median redshifts, are measured in various magnitude ranges, with special attention given to quantifying both random and systematic errors.

Brodwin, Mark, , The Canada-France deep fields-photometric redshift survey: An investigation of galaxy evolution using photometric redshifts. University of Toronto. Devost, D., , Chronométrie a haute résolution de populations stellaires extragalactiques, Universite Laval.   Newman et al. note that current deep redshift surveys fail to obtain secure redshifts for ~30%–60% of the targeted galaxies; given the depths of the planned dark energy surveys, this "direct" method of calibrating the redshifts seems to be unfeasible.   Our approach yields more accurate photometric redshift estimates compared to previous works in this field. In particular, by adopting AGN-galaxy hybrid templates, our approach delivers photometric redshifts for the X-ray counterparts with fewer outliers compared to the 3D-HST catalog, which fit these sources with galaxy-only templates.   Deep optical medium-band photometric surveys such as the Classifying Object by Medium-Band Observations (COMBO; Wolf et al. ) and the Cosmic Evolution Survey (COSMOS) with 30 bands (Ilbert et al. ) have photometric redshift accuracies of % for large samples of galaxies out to z ~ 1. By using medium-bandwidth filters, these surveys.

The FORS instruments for the VLT telescopes have been built by a joint consortium of the state observatory Heidelberg (P.I. I. Appenzeller) and the University observatories of Munich and Göttingen. A significant fraction of the joint consortiums guaranteed observing time was used for the FORS Deep .   A significant challenge facing photometric surveys for cosmological purposes is the need to produce reliable redshift estimates. The estimation of photometric redshifts (photo-z s) has been consolidated as the standard strategy to bypass the high production costs and incompleteness of spectroscopic redshift ng-based photo-z methods require the preparation of a high . We present a study of photometric redshift performance for galaxies and active galactic nuclei detected in deep radio continuum surveys. Using two multi-wavelength datasets, over the NOAO Deep Wide Field Survey Boötes and COSMOS fields, we assess photometric redshift (photo-z) performance for a sample of 4; radio continuum sources with spectroscopic redshifts relative to those of 63;   ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: 1 online resource (1 volume) Contents: Optical Wavelengths --Deep Redshift Surveys: The VIMOS VLT Deep Survey (Invited) --Constraints on Cosmology and Galaxy Formation from the NHDF --The end of the Dark Ages: Probing the Reionization of the Universe With HST and JWST --The Lenses Structure & Dynamics Survey .

The survey strategy exploits the spe-cific advantages of VIMOS, aiming at a final sample of nearly galaxy redshifts to i AB = mag, which repre-sents the largest redshift survey ever performed with ESO telescopes.

However, the combination of deep photometry in many bands with deep spectroscopy for calibration purposes is available in only a few fields. The DEEP2 Galaxy Redshift Survey (Newman et al. 2|) obtained secure and accurate redshifts for more t objects in four widely separated fields.
