Near-infrared and optical luminosity functions from the 6dF Galaxy Survey

Jones, D Heath; Peterson, Bruce; Colless, Matthew; Saunders, Will


Luminosity functions and their integrated luminosity densities are presented for the 6-degree Field Galaxy Survey (6dFGS). This ongoing survey ultimately aims to measure around 150 000 redshifts and 15 000 peculiar velocities over almost the entire southern sky at. The main target samples are taken from the 2-Micron All-Sky Survey (2MASS) Extended Source Catalog and the SuperCOSMOS Sky Survey catalogue, and comprise 138 226 galaxies complete to (, 13.00, 13.75, 15.60, 16.75). These samples are...[Show more]
