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 (L) within a range interval within a halo of a given mass, i.e., the number of galaxies with stellar luminosities within range L +/- dL/2 that reside in a halo of mass M. As such, it is an extension of a Luminosity Function (LF) including the additional parameter of the halo mass.
