ADC_Keywords: Active gal. nuclei ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: galaxies: evolution - galaxies: luminosity function, mass function Abstract: We present galaxy luminosity functions at 3.6, 4.5, 5.8, and 8.0um measured by combining photometry from the IRAC Shallow Survey with redshifts from the AGN and Galaxy Evolution Survey (AGES) of the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey Bootes field. The well defined IRAC samples contain 3800-5800 galaxies for the 3.6-8.0um bands with spectroscopic redshifts and z<0.6. We obtained relatively complete luminosity functions in the local redshift bin of z<0.2 for all four IRAC channels that are well fitted by Schechter functions. Description: We measured the mid-IR galaxy LFs in the NDWFS Bootes field by combining IRAC photometry from the IRAC Shallow Survey and AGES redshifts. This field is also covered by multiwavelength data in the UV (GALEX; Martin et al. 2005ApJ...619L...1M), optical (NDWFS), z-band (zBootes; Cool 2007ApJS..169...21C), near-IR (NDWFS and FLAMEX; Elston et al., 2006, Cat. J/ApJ/639/816), and far-IR (24um; Soifer et al. 2004AAS...204.4805S), allowing us to use spectral energy distribution (SED) models to type the galaxies and make K-corrections. File Summary:
