" Panoramic View of Cluster Evolution;

Tadayuki Kodama (National Astronomical Observatory of Japan)

We'll present some results from our on-going distant cluster project with Subaru called PISCES (Panoramic Imaging and Spectroscopy of Cluster Evolution with Subaru). The uniqueness of this project is its wide-field coverage; 34'x27' or 10-15~Mpc on a side, reaching well beyond the virial radii of clusters. We will address the following two key issues: (1) Truncation of star formation and transition of galaxy morphologies along large-scale structures. (2) Mass dependence of galaxy evolution, referred to as ``down-sizing".

Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
