Low Surface-Brightness (LSB) galaxies are severely underrepresented in surveys used to define the local luminosity function (LF), but could it in principle be detected in deep surveys. To explore the possible contribution of such objects to faint galaxy counts, we construct catalogs of simulated non-evolving galaxies drawn from a multivariate distribution of galaxy luminosities, central surface brightnesses, bulge/disk ratios and spectral-energy distributions. We compare two models dominated by… CONTINUE READING
