We investigate the dependence of the local space density of spiral galaxies on luminosity, scale size, and surface brightness. We derive bivariate space density distributions in these quantities from a sample of about 1000 Sb-Sdm spiral galaxies, corrected for selection effects in luminosity and surface brightness. The structural parameters of the galaxies were corrected for internal extinction using a description depending on galaxy surface brightness. We find that the bivariate space density… 
Size distribution of galaxies in SDSS DR7: weak dependence on halo environment
Using a sample of galaxies selected from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 7 (SDSS DR7) and a catalog of bulge-disk decompositions, we study how the size distribution of galaxies depends on
We study the bivariate size-luminosity distribution of Lyman break galaxies (LBGs) selected at redshifts around 4 and 5 in GOODS and the HUDF fields. We model the size-luminosity distribution as a

We examine the evolution of the sizes and number densities of disk galaxies using the high-resolution images obtained by the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS) with the Advanced Camera
Feedback and the fundamental line of low-luminosity low-surface-brightness/dwarf galaxies
We study in simple terms the role of feedback in establishing the scaling relations of low-surface-brightness (LSB) and dwarf galaxies with stellar masses in the range 6 × 10 5 ≤ M * ≤ 3 x 10 1 0 M O
The bivariate brightness function of galaxies and a demonstration of the impact of surface brightness selection effects on luminosity function estimations
In this paper we fit an analytic function to the bivariate brightness distribution (BBD) of galaxies. It is a combination of the classical Schechter Function convolved with a Gaussian distribution in
The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey: the number and luminosity density of galaxies
We present the bivariate brightness distribution (BBD) for the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) based on a preliminary subsample of 45 000 galaxies. The BBD is an extension of the galaxy
Properties of Dark Matter Halos in Disk Galaxies
We present a simple technique to estimate mass-to-light (M/L) ratios of stellar populations based on two broadband photometry measurements, i.e. a color-M/L relation. We apply the color-M/L relation
The size evolution of high-redshift galaxies
Hubble Space Telescope images of high-redshift galaxies selected via color and photometric redshifts are used to examine the size and axial ratio distribution of galaxies as a function of redshift at
The Properties of spiral galaxies: Confronting hierarchical galaxy formation models with observations
We compare the properties of local spiral galaxies with the predictions of the Cole et al. semi-analytic model of hierarchical galaxy formation, in order to gain insight into the baryonic processes,
The luminosity function and surface brightness distribution of H I selected galaxies
We measure the z = 0 B-band optical luminosity function (LF) for galaxies selected in a blind H i survey. The total LF of the H i selected sample is flat, with Schechter parameters M � = 19.38 +1.02


The Space Density of Spiral Galaxies as function of their Luminosity, Surface Brightness and Scalesize
The local space density of galaxies as a function of their basic structural parameters --like luminosity, surface brightness and scalesize-- is still poorly known. Our poor knowledge is mainly the
We present a scenario for the formation of disks that explains not only the properties of normal galaxies but also the properties of the population of low surface brightness galaxies (LSBs) as well.
Hubble Space Telescope Imaging of the CFRS and LDSS Redshift Surveys. II. Structural Parameters and the Evolution of Disk Galaxies to Z approximately 1
Several aspects of the evolution of star-forming galaxies are studied using measures of the two- dimensional surface brightness pro-les extracted from Hubble Space Telescope images of a sample of 341
Galaxy Selection and the Surface Brightness Distribution
Optical surveys for galaxies are biased against the inclusion of low surface brightness (LSB) galaxies. Disney (1976) suggested that the constancy of disk central surface brightness noticed by
Dark Halo and Disk Galaxy Scaling Laws in Hierarchical Universes
We use cosmological N-body/gasdynamical simulations that include star formation and feedback to examine the proposal that scaling laws between the total luminosity, rotation speed, and angular
The Star Formation Law in Galactic Disks
Measurements of the distribution of H-alpha emission in galaxies are combined with published H I and CO data in order to reassess the dependence of the massive star formation rate (SFR) on the

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.
The Nearby Optical Galaxy Sample: The Local Galaxy Luminosity Function
In this paper we derive the galaxy luminosity function from the nearby optical galaxy (NOG) sample, which is a nearly complete, magnitude-limited (B ≤ 14 mag), all-sky sample of nearby optical
