Description

We determine the low-redshift field galaxy stellar mass function (GSMF) using an area of 143deg2 from the first three years of the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey. The magnitude limits of this redshift survey are r < 19.4mag over two-thirds and 19.8mag over one-third of the area. The GSMF is determined from a sample of 5210 galaxies using a density-corrected maximum volume method. This efficiently overcomes the issue of fluctuations in the number density versus redshift. With H0=...[Show more]
