Abstract

Star formation in galaxies and their evolution depends on their local environment and, more precisely, their location in the large scale structure. The data from the VIMOS-VLT Deep Survey (VVDS) has enabled us to investigate the history of the galaxy clustering and the relation between the evolution of galaxies themselves and the galaxy clustering back to z∼1. We analyzed the evolution of the projected two-point correlation function for particular galaxy classes, with different intrinsic luminosities and stellar masses. We concluded that the properties of central and satellite galaxies in the dark matter haloes could have changed significantly between z∼1 and now.
