The Evolution of the Tully-Fisher Relation: Characterizing the Assembly of Rotation-Dominated Disk Galaxies over cosmic time
We describe how to examine the properties of rotation-dominated (RD) disk galaxies over cosmic time by probing a large range in mass and luminosity, down to the sub-L* population. The science goal is to characterize the evolution of RD disk galaxies. This white paper pertains to the "Galaxy evolution" panel of the Astro2020 Decadal Survey.
