Window Functions

Below are the window functions for some recent proper distance surveys

The window functions are normalized and the scale is logarithmic. Explanations for these plots can be seen in Rick Watkins & Hume A. Feldman, Interpreting New Data on Large Scale Bulk Flows. 1995, ApJL 453 L72-76. I am doing some new stuff so I thought I will calculate those for the ENEAR, SFI, RFGC and SBF velocity field surveys.
The paper is Current Status Of Velocity Field Surveys: A Consistency Check , 2006, astro-ph/0607426.

For a discussion of the window functions check the poster Devdeep Sarkar made for the APS meeting in Tampa, Florida for the poster session on April 18th, 2005.
