The growth of distant galaxies as seen by ALMA

Observations of distant galaxies are important for (i) elucidating the evolution of galaxy formation, and (ii) understanding the contribution of galaxies to the reionization of the universe. In recent years, a number of candidate distant galaxies have been discovered by large ground-based telescopes and space telescopes, some of which have been studied in detail by spectroscopic observations. In this talk, we introduce the results and future prospects of our group's world-leading work on distant galaxies with the ALMA telescope.
