Behavior of the LF Φ∗ and M∗ parameters as a function of the QSO redshift. The dark continuous line shows the fit model used in our simulations. The light gray markers show the best fit parameters for Φ∗ and M∗ when fitting the LF separately in each redshift bin, without any evolution model constraints. When constraining the evolution of the characteristic density, the best parameters are found to be log Φ∗ ,lowz = −5.85, αΦ∗ = −0.77 ± 0.31, and zref = 2.09 ± 0.28.
