Abstract (from CDS):

Star formation in massive galaxies is quenched at some point during hierarchical mass assembly. To understand where and when the quenching processes takes place, we study the evolution of the total star formation rate per unit total halo mass (Σ(SFR)/M) in three different mass scales: low mass halos (field galaxies), groups, and clusters, up to a redshift z≃1.6. We use deep far-infrared PACS data at 100 and 160µmto accurately estimate the total star formation rate of the luminous infrared galaxy population of 9 clusters with mass ∼1015M, and 9 groups/poor clusters with mass ∼5x1013M. Estimates of the field Σ(SFR)/Mare derived from the literature, by dividing the star formation rate density by the mean comoving matter density of the universe.The field Σ(SFR)/Mincreases with redshift up to z∼1 and it is constant thereafter. The evolution of the Σ(SFR)/M-z relation in galaxy systems is much faster than in the field. Up to redshift z∼0.2, the field has a higher Σ(SFR)/Mthan galaxy groups and galaxy clusters. At higher redshifts, galaxy groups and the field have similar Σ(SFR)/M, while massive clusters have significantly lower Σ(SFR)/Mthan both groups and the field. There is a hint of a reversal of the SFR activity vs. environment at z∼1.6, where the group Σ(SFR)/Mlies above the field Σ(SFR)/M-z relation. We discuss possible interpretations of our results in terms of the processes of downsizing, and star-formation quenching.
