The cosmic evolution of the field galaxy population has been studied out to a redshift of z ∼ 1 using a sample of 730 I-band selected galaxies, of which 591 have secure redshifts with median < z >∼ 0.56. The tri-variate luminosity function φ(M, color, z) shows unambiguously that the population evolves and that this evolution is strongly differential with color and, less strongly, with luminosity. The luminosity function of red galaxies shows very little change in either number density or… CONTINUE READING
