Flux limited sample?

  1. Sep 11, 2014 #1
    I have read it in many papers that this is a flux limited sample. But I have trouble in understanding what is the exact meaning of it and why do we use flux limited samples?

    I am fairly certain that it is exactly what it sounds like, a sample that has limits established on the bounds of the flux.
