Erratum: ``The Luminosity Function of IRAS Point Source Catalog Redshift Survey Galaxies'' (ApJ, 587, L89 )
We have mentioned that we normalized the parameters for the luminosity function by the Hubble constant H0=100 km s-1 Mpc-1 however, for the characteristic luminosity L* we erroneously normalized it by H0=70 km s-1 Mpc-1. As a result, we have proposed wrong numerical factors for L*. In addition, there is a typographic error in the exponent of equation (6) of the published manuscript. Correct values are as follows: L*=(4.34+/-0.86)×108 h-2 [Lsolar] for equation (4), and L*=(2.50+/-0.44)×109 h-2 [Lsolar] and L*=(9.55+/-0.20)×108 h-2 [Lsolar] for equations (5) and (6), respectively. All the other parameters are correct. The errors have occurred only in the final conversion, and they do not affect our discussions and conclusions at all. We thank P. Ranalli for pointing out the errors.
