Description

Though half of cosmic starlight is absorbed by dust and reradiated at long wavelengths (3 μm–3 mm), constraints on the infrared through the millimeter galaxy luminosity function (or the "IRLF") are poor in comparison to the rest-frame ultraviolet and optical galaxy luminosity functions, particularly at z gsim 2.5. Here, we present a backward evolution model for interpreting number counts, redshift distributions, and cross-band flux density correlations in the infrared and submillimeter sky,...[Show more]
