In science:

FIR/sub-mm bands, where dust re-emits all the starlight absorbed in the rest-frame B and U bands (Hughes et al. 1998, Blain et al. 1999).
The cosmic evolution of the galaxy luminosity density
Blaine Lawson, Jr., Lectures on minimal submanifolds.
Geometric Analysis and General Relativity
Moreover, models based on IR and sub-millimeter models also predict an evolution with an exponent close to β ∼ 4 (Blain et al. 1999; Xu et al. 2003; Lagache et al.
Spitzer view on the evolution of star-forming galaxies from z=0 to z~3
They were discovered in large numbers by the Submillimeter Common-User Bolometer Array (SCUBA), and generate a significant fraction of the cosmic energy output (Smail et al 1997, Blain et al 2002).
Simulating Merging Galaxies: The Infrared View
Blain et al. (2004) 7 It should be noted that this is a fairly small training set for such a large redshift range.
PHAT: PHoto-z Accuracy Testing
Blain & Longair (1993a,b) and Sasaki (1994) used a similar approach, obtaining identical results.
The Cosmological Mass Function
In particular, Blain & Longair (1993) found a numerical solution, while Sasaki (1994) derived an analytical expression for the formation time scale.
The Cosmological Mass Function
The time scales for halo formation (§2.5.2) have been used by Blain & Longair (1993a,b) to estimate the radiation background in the millimetric band, caused by star formation in galaxies.
The Cosmological Mass Function
The large amount of far-infrared radiation seen by the DIRBE and FIRAS appears to imply that the global star formation rate currently deduced from optical surveys is severely biased (Dwek et al. 1998; Blain et al. 1999; Calzetti & Heckman 1999).

Blaine Lawson, Jr. and Marie-Louise Michelsohn.
On the Stability of Riemannian Manifold with Parallel Spinors
Sub-millimeter Common User Bolometric Array (SCUBA) and the Max-Planck Millimeter Bolometer (MAMBO) have been made since their detection in the first deep submm survey by Smail, Ivison & Blain (1997).
An investigation of the submillimeter background radiation using SCUBA and Spitzer
Blain & Longair (1993a,b) and Sasaki (1994) used a similar approach, obtaining identical results.
On the cosmological mass function theory
LIRGs and ULIRGs are believed to be the largest contributors to the farIR background and star-formation energy density at z ≈ 1 –3 (Blain et al. 2002; Elbaz & Cesarsky 2003), and local ULIRGs are frequently used as analogues for the luminous sub-mm galaxy population.
