Abstract (from CDS):

We analyse the evolution of the red sequence in a sample of galaxy clusters at redshifts 0.8 z z z=1.5. We find that the luminous-to-faint ratio and the slope of the faint end of the luminosity distribution of the HCS red sequence are consistent with those measured in WINGS, implying that there is no deficit of red galaxies at magnitudes fainter than at high redshifts. We find that the most massive HCS clusters host a population of bright red sequence galaxies at MV MV M*/M) > 11.5) red sequence galaxies in the WINGS clusters, which do not include only the brightest cluster galaxies and which are not present in the HCS clusters, suggesting that they formed at epochs later than z=0.8. The comparison with the luminosity distribution of a sample of passive red sequence galaxies drawn from the COSMOS/UltraVISTA field in the photometric redshift range 0.8 zphot
