The Parkes quarter-Jansky flat-spectrum sample - III. Space density and evolution of QSOs
We analyze the Parkes quarter-Jansky flat-spectrum sample of QSOs in terms of space density, including the redshift distribution, the radio luminosity function, and the evidence for a redshift cutoff. With regard to the luminosity function, we note the strong evolution in space density from the present day to epochs corresponding to redshifts ∼1. We draw attention to a selection effect due to spread in spectral shape that may have misled other investigators to consider the apparent similarities...[Show more]
