Using a catalog of 147,986 galaxy redshifts and fluxes from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), we measure the galaxy luminosity density at z = 0.1 in five optical bandpasses corresponding to the SDSS bandpasses shifted to match their rest-frame shape at z = 0.1. We denote the bands 0.1u, 0.1g, 0.1r, 0.1i, 0.1z with λeff = (3216, 4240, 5595, 6792, 8111 A), respectively. To estimate the luminosity function, we use a maximum likelihood method that allows for a general form for the shape of the… 
The galaxy luminosity function at z ≃ 1 in the hudf: Probing the dwarf population
We present a catalog of spectrophotometric redshifts for 1308 galaxies from the Grism ACS Program for Extragalactic Science (GRAPES) observations with the Hubble Space Telescope. These low-resolution
Evolution of the u-band luminosity function from redshift 1.2 to 0
We produce and analyse u-band (λ ≈ 355 nm) luminosity functions (LFs) for the red and blue populations of galaxies using data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) u-band Galaxy Survey (uGS) and
We present galaxy luminosity functions at 3.6, 4.5, 5.8, and 8.0 μm measured by combining photometry from the IRAC Shallow Survey with redshifts from the AGN and Galaxy Evolution Survey (AGES) of the

Luminosity Function Constraints on the Evolution of Massive Red Galaxies Since z~0.9
We measure the evolution of the luminous red galaxy (LRG) luminosity function in the redshift range 0.1 3L*) red galaxies have grown by less than 50% (at 99% confidence), since z = 0.9, in stark

Evolution of the galaxy luminosity function at z < 0.3
We measure the redshift-dependent luminosity function and the comoving radial density of galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 1 (SDSS DR1). Both measurements indicate that the
