Using a new spectroscopic sample and methods accounting for spectroscopic sampling fractions that vary in magnitude and surface brightness, we present R-band galaxy luminosity functions (GLFs) for six nearby galaxy clusters with redshifts of 4000 km s-1 < cz < 20,000 km s-1 and velocity dispersions of 700 km s-1 < σ < 1250 km s-1. In the case of the nearest cluster, A1060, our sample extends to MR = -14 (7 mag below M*), making this the deepest spectroscopic determination of the cluster GLF to… 
THE INFRARED LUMINOSITY FUNCTIONS OF RICH CLUSTERS
We present MIPS observations of the cluster A3266. About 100 spectroscopic cluster members have been detected at 24 µm. The IR luminosity function (LF) in A3266 is very similar to that in the Coma

The Luminosity Function of Low-Redshift Abell Galaxy Clusters
We present the results from a survey of 57 low-redshift Abell galaxy clusters to study the radial dependence of the luminosity function (LF). The dynamical radius of each cluster, -->r200, was
The Galaxy Population of Low-Redshift Abell Clusters
We present a study of the luminosity and color properties of galaxies selected from a sample of 57 low-redshift Abell clusters. We utilize the non-parametric dwarf-to-giant ratio (DGR) and the blue
Galaxy luminosity functions in WINGS clusters
Aims. Using V band photometry of the WINGS survey, we derive galaxy luminosity functions (LF) in nearby clusters. This sample is complete down to MV =−15.15, and it is homogeneous, thus allowing the
THE FAINT END OF THE LUMINOSITY FUNCTION AND LOW SURFACE BRIGHTNESS GALAXIES
Smithsonian Hectospec Lensing Survey (SHELS) is a dense redshift survey covering a 4 deg2 region to a limiting R = 20.6. In the construction of the galaxy catalog and in the acquisition of
K-Band Properties of Well-Sampled Groups of Galaxies
We use a sample of 55 groups and six clusters of galaxies ranging in mass from 7 × 1011 to 1.5 × 1015 M⊙ to examine the correlation of the Ks-band luminosity with mass discovered by Lin and coauthors
