  • We present simulations of quasar colors, magnitudes, and numbers at redshifts 5 6 epoch, taking advantage of the new UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey near-infrared filter set, and we examine the redshift intervals of maximum productivity, discussing color selection and survey depth issues. On the basis of the SDSS sample, we find that the surface density of z > 4.7 quasars increases by a factor of 3 times by extending 0.7 i magnitudes deeper than the SDSS spectroscopic survey limit of i = 20.2… CONTINUE READING
