Autofib Redshift Survey - II. Evolution of the galaxy luminosity function by spectral type

Heyl, Jeremy; Colless, Matthew; Ellis, Richard; Broadhurst, Tom


We determine the evolution of the galaxy luminosity function (LF) as a function of spectral type using the Autofib Redshift Survey, a compendium of over 1700 galaxy redshifts in various magnitude-limited samples spanning b_J=11.5-24.0. To carry out this analysis we have developed a cross-correlation technique which classifies faint galaxy spectra into one of six types based on local galaxy templates. Tests and simulations show that this technique yields classifications correct to wtihin one...[Show more]
