The Luminosity Function of Early-type Field Galaxies At


We measure the luminosity function of morphologically selected E/S0 galaxies from z 1⁄4 0:5 to 1.0 using deep high-resolution Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) imaging data. Our analysis covers an area of 48 arcmin (8 times the area of the Hubble Deep Field North) and extends 2 mag deeper (I 24 mag) than was possible in the Deep Groth Strip Survey (DGSS… (More)
