Bottom: diagram showing the distance from the main sequence as a function of stellar mass for our parent sample of star-forming galaxies in COSMOS (0.5 < z < 0.9). We highlight with a black horizontal line the 0 level. The blue and red lines indicate the limits taken for our main sequence and starburst selection, respectively. The final selected sample is highlighted with blue squares and red circles, correspondingly. The SFR used in the y-axis is normalized to the median redshift of our sample (0.73), following the SFR-redshift evolution of Sargent et al. (2014). Top: histogram distribution (normalized to unit area) of the stellar masses of our selected sample of starbursts (red) and main sequence galaxies (blue), showing that the two subsets have similar distributions. The two vertical lines indicate, according to their corresponding colors, the median values of M* of SB and MS galaxies.
