Going wide and deep with the Hypersuprime Camera Survey

Our ongoing imaging survey with the Hypersuprime Camera (HSC) on the Subaru Telescope provides a rich data set for studying galaxy evolution, from the most massive elliptical galaxies to ultra low surface- brightness dwarfs. I will discuss ongoing projects that utilize the deep and wide HSC imaging to address the role of merging in the growth of black holes and galaxies, as well as our search for some of the most extreme low surface-brightness galaxies.

Followed by wine and cheese in Pupin 1332.
