Fig. 7


UV luminosity function at z ~ 8 showing the number densities computed from an MC method based on SED-fitting results (in red). The best fit of the Schechter function is shown as the black line. For comparison purpose, we over plotted densities from Atek et al. (2015), Bradley et al. (2012), Bouwens et al. (2014b), McLure et al. (2013), and Finkelstein et al. (2014). The green dashed line is the LF published by Bouwens et al. (2014b), the gray line the parameterization from McLure et al. (2013), the pink line is from Ishigaki et al. (2015), and the magenta line from Schmidt et al. (2014). The left upper panel displays the 1σ confidence interval on the fit of the Schechter function using 3 combinations of numbers densities: Bradley et al. (2012) and Atek et al. (2014) in red, Finkelstein et al. (2014) and McLure et al. (2013) in green, and Bradley et al. (2012) and McLure et al. (2013) in blue.
