1992A&A...264...75v The luminosity function of the Local Group S. van den Bergh Dominion Astrophysical Observatory, National Research Council, 5071 West Saanich Road, Victoria, B.C., Y8X 4M6, Canada Received March 22, accepted April 22, 1992 Abstract. Data on all galaxies that are known to be located within 1.0 Mpc have been used to determine the shape of the Local Group luminosity function over a range of 13 mag. These data may be represented by a Schechter function with {alpha}= -1.1 and M_v_^*^ = - 22.5. The luminosity function of the Local Group, which extends over a range of at least 13 mag, shows no evidence for a low-luminosity cutoff. Key words: galaxy luminosity function - the Local Group
