Abstract: We present the results of spectral energy distribution (SED) fitting analysis for Lyman-break galaxies (LBGs) at z ∼ 5 in the GOODS-N and its flanking fields. From the SED fitting for ∼ 100 objects, we found that the stellar masses range from 108 to 1011M with a median value of 4×109M. By using the large sample of galaxies at z ∼ 5, we construct the stellar mass function (SMF) with incompleteness corrections. By integrating down to 108M, the cosmic stellar mass density at z ∼ 5 is calculated to be 7 × 106MMpc−3.
