The clusters are selected by their Rc-3.6um galaxy color-magnitude relation using the cluster red-sequence algorithm. Using this cluster sample, we compute the 3.6, 4.5, 5.8, and 8.0um, cluster luminosity functions (LFs). Description: The IRAC imaging data for this project were observed as part of the publicly available, Spitzer FLS. The extragalactic and Galactic components of the Spitzer First Look Survey were executed on the observatory December 1-11, 2003 and the ecliptic component was executed January 21-22, 2004.

Note (1): Bgc is the correlation amplitude between the cluster center and galaxies; the centroid that produces the largest value should be the best centroid of the galaxy population. See section 3.8 and 3.9 for further details (exoressed in Mpc1.8) Note (2): Using Muzzin et al. (2007ApJ...663..150M): logM200=(1.62±0.24)logBgc+(9.86±0.77) and logR200=(0.53±0.09)logBgc-(1.42±0.29). See section 4 for further details.
