Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): deconstructing bimodality - I. Red ones and blue ones
We measure the mass functions for generically red and blue galaxies, using a z < 0.12 sample of log M∗ > 8.7 field galaxies from the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey. Our motivation is that, as we show, the dominant uncertainty in existing measurements stems from how ‘red’ and ‘blue’ galaxies have been selected/defined. Accordingly, we model our data as two naturally overlapping populations, each with their own mass function and colour–mass relation, which enables us characterize the...[Show more]
