We use more than 110 500 galaxies from the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) to estimate the bJ-band galaxy luminosity function at redshift z = 0, taking account of evolution, the distri- bution of magnitude measurement errors and small corrections for incompleteness in the galaxy catalogue. Throughout the interval −16.5 > MbJ − 5 log10 h > −22, the luminosity function is accurately described by a Schechter function with MJ − 5 log10 h =− 19.66 ± 0.07, α = −1.21 ± 0.03 and � � = (1.61 ± 0.08…

From the Hubble Deep Field catalog recently presented by Driver et al., the local bivariate brightness distribution of field galaxies within a 326 Mpc3 volume-limited sample is derived and it is concluded that a luminosity-surface brightness relation exists for both the field and cluster galaxy populations.
