We constrain the evolution of the galaxy stellar mass function from 2 2 × 105M⊙ at z = 0). The most recent studies from ZFOURGE and CANDELS also suggest flatter faint end slopes that are consistent with our results, but with a lower degree of precision. This work illustrates the strong connections between low and high-z observations when viewed through the lens of lambda cold dark matter numerical simulations.
