Abstract

In this proceeding paper, we discuss the important underlying connections between the faint end slope αs of the stellar mass function of star-forming galaxies, the logarithmic slope β of the sSFR-mass relation and merging through the continuity approach, as we introduced in Peng et al. (2010, hereafter P10) and (2012, hereafter P12).
