Hidden star Formation in the Distant Universe and the formation of today’s most massive galaxies

In the local universe most stars are formed in disk galaxies with the bulk of their emission at ultraviolet/optical wavebands. Extremely dusty galaxies, with an enhanced emission at infrared (IR) wavelengths, are rare “freaks” in today’s universe but dominate the co-moving energy density in the distant universe. With unusually high star formation rates, these galaxies can build the stellar bulk of a massive galaxy in under a few hundred million years, providing a long-sought answer to the origin of today’s most massive galaxies. These dusty systems have also been targets of deep observing campaigns to trace the growth of large-scale structures in the early universe. I will provide a review on dusty star-forming galaxies in the distant universe in the light of ongoing and future observing campaigns with state-of-the-art instruments (i.e., 10m-class telescopes, current and upcoming space telescopes).
