The UVX quasar optical luminosity function and its evolution

Abstract:

The recently-finished Edinburgh UVX quasar survey at B < 18 is used together with other complete samples to estimate the shape and evolution of the optical luminosity function in the redshift range 0.3 < z < 2.2. There is a significantly higher space density of quasars at high luminosity and low redshift than previously found in the PG sample of Schmidt and Green (1983), with the result that the shape of the luminosity function at low redshifts (z < 1) is seen to be consistent wit...
