We investigate the extent to which one can use a P(D) analysis to extract number counts of unclustered sources from maps of the far-infrared background. Such maps currently available, and those expected to emerge in the near future, are dominated by confusion noise resulting from poor resolution. We simulate background maps with an underlying two-slope model for N(S), and we find that, in an experiment of FIRBACK type, we can extract the high-flux slope with an error of a few per cent, whereas… CONTINUE READING
