J/ApJ/560/566   K-band galaxy luminosity function from 2MASS   (Kochanek+, 2001)

The K-band galaxy luminosity function. Kochanek C.S., Pahre M.A., Falco E.E., Huchra J.P., Mader J., Jarrett T.H., Chester T., Cutri R., Schneider S.E. <Astrophys. J. 560, 566 (2001)> =2001ApJ...560..566K
ADC_Keywords: Surveys ; Galaxy catalogs ; Redshifts ; Magnitudes Keywords: cosmology: observations - galaxies: distances and redshifts - galaxies: luminosity function, mass function - surveys Abstract: We measured the K-band luminosity function using a complete sample of 4192 morphologically typed 2MASS galaxies with µKs=20mag/arcsec2 isophotal magnitudes 7<K20<11.25mag spread over 2.12sr.
