Abstract: Using the very deep Subaru images of the GOODS-N region, from the MOIRCS Deep Survey and images from the HST/ACS, we have measured the Luminosity Ratio ( LR) of the outer to the central regions of massive (M > 1010.5M) galaxies at fixed radii in a single rest-frame for z < 3.5 as a new approach to the problem of size evolution. We didn't observe any evolution in the median LR, Had a significant size growth occurred, the outer to central luminosity ratios would have demonstrated a corresponding increase with a decrease in redshift.
