Comparison of the VIPERS mass function (red points, as in Fig. 5) with the semi-analytical models of Bower et al. (2006), De Lucia & Blaizot (2007), and Guo et al. (2011) (grey dotted, yellow solid, green short-dashed lines), whose GSMFs have been derived directly from the tables available in the Millennium database (Lemson & Virgo Consortium 2006). The Guo et al. (2011) stellar masses have also been convolved with a Gaussian of dispersion 0.15 dex, to reproduce observational uncertainty on stellar mass determinations; the resulting GSMFs are represented with green long-dashed lines.
