12 Gyr of Cosmic Star Formation

Olga Cucciati (Osservatorio Astronomico di Trieste, Italie)

The determination of the Cosmic Star Formation Rate Density
History is crucial to understand how stellar mass has been assembled
in galaxies. I will present the Cosmic SFRD History derived with the
VVDS Deep and Ultra-Deep spectroscopic surveys from the global FUV
Luminosity Function, in the redshift range 0 < z < 4, i.e. in the past 12
Gyr. I will also describe the global evolution of the dust attenuation
within this redshift range. This is the first time that this is done
in a coherent manner within a homogeneous galaxy sample across such a
broad redshift range. Our results are compelling for models of galaxy
