Interstellar and Circumgalactic Properties of an Unseen $z=6.84$ Galaxy: Abundances, Ionization, and Heating in the Earliest Known Quasar Absorber

Kavli Affiliate: Gabor Furesz | First 5 Authors: Robert A. Simcoe, Masafusa Onoue, Anna-Christina Eilers, Eduardo Banados, Thomas J. Cooper | Summary: We analyze relative abundances and ionization conditions in a strong absorption system at z=6.84, seen in the spectrum of the z=7.54 background quasar ULAS J134208.10+092838.61. Singly ionized C, Si, Fe, Mg, and Al […]

Blandford-Znajek jets in galaxy formation simulations: method and implementation

Kavli Affiliate: Debora Sijacki | First 5 Authors: Rosie Y. Talbot, Martin A. Bourne, Debora Sijacki, , | Summary: Jets launched by active galactic nuclei (AGN) are believed to play a significant role in shaping the properties of galaxies and provide an energetically viable mechanism through which galaxies can become quenched. Here we present a […]

Deep learning insights into cosmological structure formation

Kavli Affiliate: Brian Nord | First 5 Authors: Luisa Lucie-Smith, Hiranya V. Peiris, Andrew Pontzen, Brian Nord, Jeyan Thiyagalingam | Summary: While the evolution of linear initial conditions present in the early universe into extended halos of dark matter at late times can be computed using cosmological simulations, a theoretical understanding of this complex process […]

Quantifying Ionospheric Effects on Global 21-cm Observations

Kavli Affiliate: George Efstathiou | First 5 Authors: Emma Shen, Dominic Anstey, Eloy de Lera Acedo, Anastasia Fialkov, Will Handley | Summary: We modelled the two major layer of Earth’s ionosphere, the F-layer and the D-layer, by a simplified spatial model with temporal variance to study the chromatic ionospheric effects on global 21-cm observations. From […]

Affleck-Dine inflation in supergravity

Kavli Affiliate: Masahiro Kawasaki | First 5 Authors: Masahiro Kawasaki, Shusuke Ueda, , , | Summary: Affleck-Dine inflation is a recently proposed model in which a single complex scalar field, nonminimally coupled to gravity, drives inflation and simultaneously generates the baryon asymmetry of universe via Affleck-Dine mechanism. In this paper we investigate the supersymmetric implementation […]

Origin of the in-orbit instrumental background of the Hard X-ray Imager onboard Hitomi

Kavli Affiliate: Tadayuki Takahashi | First 5 Authors: Kouichi Hagino, Hirokazu Odaka, Goro Sato, Tamotsu Sato, Hiromasa Suzuki | Summary: Understanding and reducing the in-orbit instrumental backgrounds are essential to achieving high sensitivity in hard X-ray astronomical observations. The observational data of the Hard X-ray Imager (HXI) on board the Hitomi satellite provides useful information […]
