      Kaviraj, S.; Huertas-Company, M.; Cohen, S.; Peirani, S.; Windhorst, R. A.; O'Connell, R. W.; Silk, J.; Dopita, M. A.; Hathi, N. P.; Koekemoer, A. M.; Mei, S.; Rutkowski, M.; Ryan, R. E.; Shankar, F. (2014-09-11)
      We study of the role of ‘major’ mergers (mass ratios >1: 4) in driving size growth in high-redshift (1 < z < 2) spheroidal galaxies (SGs) with stellar masses between 109.5 and 1010.7 M⊙. This is a largely unexplored mass ...
