" Formation of Massive Galaxies in the Growing Large-Scale Structure at High Redshift "
With Subaru, and other facilities, we are now probing
the significantly large volume of the Universe at high redshift
to witness or approach to the rather (hopefully) complete
view of the history of the galaxy-scale structure formation.
In this talk, we present our recent new results of the wide-field
optical/infrared imaging and spectroscopic survey for galaxies
at z=3.1 in/around SSA22 area.
Suprime Cam narrow-band image over the 1.5 sq. deg,
or ~ 200Mpc (comoving) at the largest side, tells us the whole
environments and the significance of the large-scale high-density
region of the star-forming galaxies, compared with the
similary deep narrow-band imaging in the general control fields.
It was turned out that the highest density 'peak' with ~20Mpc scale
(~1 SCam FOV!) has the overdensity of ~4 at z=3.1.
We also spectroscopically mapped a part of these structures with FOCAS,
DEIMOS (Keck), and VIMOS (VLT) to understand the 3D density
distribution of LyAlpha emitters as well as to investigate
various spectroscopic properties (e.g., line width) of the very interesting
targets such as extended Lyman Alpha Blobs, which are the candidates
of massive galaxies in their forming phase, as well as a new class of
interesting objects, the Very Large LyA Equivalent-Width Galaxies.
As the region has been mapped with the infrared facilities/projects
such as Spitzer, WFCAM (UKIRT/UKIDSS), MOIRCS, I also
briefly touch with the infrared view of this region.
The many of the work has been made in collabolation with
Yuichi Matsuda (Kyoto) , Tomoki Hayashino (Tohoku),
and colleagues in the projects.
