The HDF, The Arizona View
We present an initial analysis of the star formation rates in the deep NICMOS field of the Hubble Deep Field. The analysis utilizes template photometric redshift and extinction techniques on the combination of six optical and near infrared fluxes available for this region from observations with both NICMOS and WFPC2. Our results are consistent with a constant star formation rate for a redshift range of 1 to 6.
