Science Goals

Galaxy Evolution

Probe the assembly of massive galaxies by tracing the evolution of their stellar mass function with >500,000 galaxies at 3 < z < 6 and including several thousand at z > 6.

Stellar Mass Functions

Link the stellar mass of galaxies to their dark matter halos via clustering, for testing of cosmological models.

Dark Energy

Constrain the properties of dark energy using the non-linear power spectrum at high-redshift.

Galaxy Formation

Identify the earliest sites of galaxy formation and reionization, and spectroscopically confirm high-escape fraction candidates.

Quenching in the Early Universe

Identify and confirm the first galaxies to quench their star formation.
