Spectroscopy in A2199 and Virgo clusters


We report a new determination of the faint end of the galaxy luminosity function (LF) in the nearby clusters Abell 2199 and Virgo using data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and the Hectospec multifiber spectrograph on the MMT. The luminosity function of A2199 is consistent with a single Schechter function to M_r_=-15.6+5log(h_70_) with a faint-end slope of alpha=-1.13+/-0.07 (statistical). The LF in Virgo extends to M_r_~-13.5~M*+8 and has a slope of alpha=-1.28+/-0.06 (statistical).
