We compute the intrinsic isotropic peak luminosity function (LF) and formation rate of long gamma-ray bursts (LGRBs) using a novel approach. We complement a standard log\,$N$\,--\,log\,$P$ brightness distribution and $V_{\mathrm{max}}$ estimations with two observation-time relations: a redshift--observation-time relation (log\,$z$\,--\,log\,$T$) and a new luminosity--observation-time relation (log\,$L$\,--\,log\,$T$). We show that this approach reduces degeneracies that exist between the rate… Expand
