Astronomy Colloquium: Piecing Together the Formation Histories of Massive Galaxies

In past few years, large and deep photometric and spectroscopic

surveys have significantly advanced our understanding of galaxy growth

from the most active time in the universe (z~2) to the present day. In

particular, the evolution in stellar mass, star formation rate, and

structure of complete galaxy samples have provided independent and

complementary insights into their formation histories. Nonetheless,

many outstanding questions and issues remain. In this colloquium I

will give an overview of our current picture of galaxy growth in the

past 11 billion years, discuss current challenges and outstanding

questions, and introduce new efforts to further unravel the formation

histories of massive galaxies.
