Abstract (from CDS):

The Planck Early Release Compact Source Catalogue (ERCSC) has offered the first opportunity to accurately determine the luminosity function of dusty galaxies in the very local Universe (i.e. distances ≲ 100Mpc), at several (sub-)millimetre wavelengths, using blindly selected samples of low-redshift sources, unaffected by cosmological evolution. This project, however, requires careful consideration of a variety of issues including the choice of the appropriate flux density measurement, the separation of dusty galaxies from radio sources and from Galactic sources, the correction for the CO emission, the effect of density inhomogeneities and more. We present estimates of the local luminosity functions at 857 GHz (350 µm), 545 GHz (550µm) and 353GHz (850 µm) extending across the characteristic luminosity L{sstarf}, and a preliminary estimate over a limited luminosity range at 217 GHz (1382 µm). At 850µm and for luminosities LL{sstarf} our results agree with previous estimates, derived from the Submillimeter Common-User Bolometer Array (SCUBA) Local Universe Galaxy Survey, but are higher than the latter at LL{sstarf}. We also find good agreement with estimates at 350 and 500 µm based on preliminary Herschel survey data.
