• A method for accurate estimation of luminosity function proposed by Yunnan Observatory

    Recently, the Astrophysical Journal supply series published online a research achievement jointly completed by Dr. yuan Zunli and researcher Wang Jiancheng of Yunnan Observatory, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Professor Matt Jarvis of Oxford University, UK. Based on the principle of nuclear density estimation in modern statistics, this study proposes a universal method for accurately estimating the luminosity function, which is of great value for the statistical study of the evolutionary properties of galaxies, active galactic nuclei, gamma bursts and other extragalactic objects Luminosity function is a very basic statistic,…
