Title: Applications of wide and deep multi-waveband imaging in the extragalactic astronomy : Suprime-Cam to HSC
Abstract: Galaxies are one of the major populations in the Universe, which are thought to form and evolve in the large-scale structures. To better understand star formation and mass assemble history of the galaxies in such large structures, from the present-day to young epochs of the Universe, wide and deep imaging in multiple wavebands is an essential astronomical way. I will briefly review the wide- and deep-field imaging surveys which have been undertaken at Subaru Telescope, Mauna Kea, Hawaii, and applications of the data set constrcuted in those surveys to studies of extragalactic astronomy. As a natural extension of the wide-field studies, Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC), which is the next-generation wide-field imager at Subaru Telescope, is under development. The prospective imaging surveys with HSC and dedicated data managing system for HSC will also be briefly mentioned.
