The radio luminosity function from the low-frequency 3CRR, 6CE and 7CRS complete samples

Abstract:

We measure the radio luminosity function (RLF) of steep-spectrum radio sources using three redshift surveys of flux-limited samples selected at low (151 and 178 MHz) radio frequency, low-frequency source counts and the local RLF. The redshift surveys used are the new 7C Redshift Survey (7CRS) and the brighter 3CRR and 6CE surveys totalling 356 sources with virtually complete redshift information. This yields unprecedented coverage of the radio luminosity versus z plane for steep-spectrum sour...
