How to measure star formation rates in galaxies?

Abstract : Our knowledge of cosmic mass assembly deeply relies on measurements of star formation rates as a function of redshift. This parameter must be estimated in a consistent manner, with a good knowledge of systematics, before studying its correlation with other quantities such as stellar or gas masses. Constraining the rate at which galaxies form stars across the Universe is of utmost importance if we want to understand galaxy formation and evolution.
