This chapter details the study of high-redshift galaxies. It first outlines the telescopes used for observing these galaxies: the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and its follow ups, as well as the next-generation telescopes such as the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). Next, the chapter discusses the methods for isolating candidate high-redshift galaxies from the foreground population of feeble lower-redshift galaxies. After outlining the observational techniques for identifying high-redshift galaxies, the chapter turns to the luminosity and mass functions, before enumerating strategies to constrain the statistical properties of galaxies, including “one point functions” like the luminosity or stellar mass functions as well as spatial correlations.

Keywords:   high-redshift galaxies, Hubble Space Telescope, black holes, James Webb Space Telescope, luminosity, stellar mass functions
