We present a new accurate measurement of the H I mass function of galaxies from the HIPASS Bright Galaxy Catalog, a sample of 1000 galaxies with the highest H I peak flux densities in the southern (δ < 0) hemisphere (Koribalski et al. 2003). This sample spans nearly four orders of magnitude in H I mass (from log(MHI⁄ M⊙) + 2logh75 = 6.8 to 10.6) and is the… (More)
