A SURVEY OF LUMINOUS HIGH-REDSHIFT QUASARS WITH SDSS AND WISE. II. THE BRIGHT END OF THE QUASAR LUMINOSITY FUNCTION AT z similar to 5
This is the second paper in a series on a new luminous z ~ 5 quasar survey using optical and near-infrared colors. Here we present a new determination of the bright end of the quasar luminosity function (QLF) at z ~ 5. Combining our 45 new quasars with previously known quasars that satisfy our selections, we construct the largest uniform luminous z ~ 5 quasar sample to date, with 99 quasars in the range of 4.7 ≤ z < 5.4 and −29 < M 1450 ≤ −26.8, within the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS)...[Show more]
