THE REST-FRAME K-BAND LUMINOSITY FUNCTION OF GALAXIES IN CLUSTERS TO z = 1.3

Abstract

We derive the rest-frameK-band luminosity function for galaxies in 32 clusters at 0:6 < z < 1:3 using deep 3.6 and 4.5 m imaging from the Spitzer Space Telescope Infrared Array Camera. The luminosity functions approximate the stellar mass function of the cluster galaxies. Their dependence on redshift indicates that massive cluster galaxies (to the… (More)
