Extract

A first step in the study of the evolution of the radio galaxy population is the determination of the radio luminosity function (RLF), i.e. ρ(log P, z), which results from (and must finally be interpreted in terms of) ‘light curves’ of individual objects (i.e. P(t)) and the ‘birth rate’ function ṅ (log P, t).
