Early Results of the Subaru Hyper Suprime-Cam Survey for High Redshift Galaxies

I present progresses of our Subaru Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) optical imaging
survey for high redshift galaxies including Lyman alpha emitters (LAEs),
and overview the early results. The data of the early results
allow us to obtain over a half million galaxies at z~4-7 in a total area of
>100 deg^2 that are about 1-2 orders of magnitude larger than those of
previous high-z galaxy surveys. With the large Subaru/HSC galaxy
sample supported by the spectra taken with Keck, Subaru, and Magellan,
and the large-area deep Spitzer data, I will present various statistical
measurements including luminosity functions and correlation functions,
and discuss galaxy formation and cosmic reionization
based on our ten papers for refereed journals, seven of which are
already accepted for publication.
