|Title:||AMICO galaxy clusters in KiDS-DR3: Evolution of the luminosity function between z = 0.1 and z = 0.8||Authors:||PUDDU, Emanuella Anna
|Issue Date:||2021||Journal:||ASTRONOMY & ASTROPHYSICS||Number:||645||First Page:||A9||Abstract:||<BR /> Aims: By means of the r-band luminosity function (LF) of galaxies in a sample of about 4000 clusters detected by the cluster finder AMICO in the KiDS-DR3 area of about 400 deg<SUP>2</SUP>, we studied the evolution with richness and redshift of the passive evolving (red), star-forming (blue), and total galaxy populations. This analysis was performed for clusters in the redshift range [0.1, 0.8] and in the mass range [10<SUP>13</SUP> M<SUB>⊙</SUB>, 10<SUP>15</SUP> M<SUB>⊙</SUB>]. <BR /> Methods: To compute LFs, we binned the luminosity distribution in magnitude and statistically subtracted the background. Then, we divided the cluster sample in bins of both redshift and richness/mass. We stacked LF counts in each 2D bin for the total, red, and blue galaxy populations; finally, we fitted the stacked LF with a Schechter function and studied the trend of its parameters with redshift and richness/mass. <BR /> Results: We found a passive evolution with z for the bright part of the LF for the red and total populations and no significant trends for the faint galaxies. The mass/richness dependence is clear for the density parameter Φ<SUB>⋆</SUB>, increasing with richness, and for the total population faint end, which is shallower in the rich clusters.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/31993||URL:||http://arxiv.org/abs/2011.05131v1
