Conditional Luminosity Function

(CLF)
(function characterizing luminosity of galaxies with a given halo mass)

The Conditional Luminosity Function (CLF) computes the average number of galaxies with Luminosity within a range interval, given the mass of the surrounding halo, i.e., the number of galaxies with stellar luminosities within range L +/- dL/2 that reside in some halo of mass M. As such, it is an extension of a Luminosity Function including the additional parameter of the halo mass. The CLF is used in cosmological simulations.
