Description

We present the bivariate brightness distribution (BBD) for the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) based on a preliminary subsample of 45 000 galaxies. The BBD is an extension of the galaxy luminosity function, incorporating surface brightness information. It allows the measurement of the local luminosity density, jB, and of the galaxy luminosity and surface brightness distributions, while accounting for surface brightness selection biases. The recovered 2dFGRS BBD shows a strong...[Show more]
