The Global, Local and Cluster Galaxy Luminosity Function

Driver, Simon; De Propris, Roberto


We review selected measurements of the galaxy luminosity function including the field, the local group, the local sphere, nearby clusters (Virgo, Coma and Fornax) and clusters in general. We conclude that, excluding the super-luminous cD and D galaxies, the overall cluster luminosity function is fully consistent with the field luminosity function over the magnitude range in common (-22 ≤ MB 5logh0.68 ≤ -17). We find that only in the core regions of clusters (r ≤ 300 kpc) does the overall form...[Show more]
