We analyze the SDSS Lyα forest P F (k, z) measurement to determine the linear theory power spectrum. Our analysis is based on fully hydrodynamic simulations, extended using hydro-PM simulations. We account for the effect of absorbers with damping wings, which leads to an increase in the slope of the linear power spectrum. We break the de-generacy between(More)
We combine the constraints from the recent Ly forest analysis of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and the SDSS galaxy bias analysis with previous constraints from SDSS galaxy clustering, the latest supernovae, and 1st year WMAP cosmic microwave background anisotropies. We find significant improvements on all of the cosmological parameters compared to(More)
It is demonstrated that strong magnetic fields are produced from a zero initial magnetic field during the pregalactic era, when galaxies are first forming. Their development proceeds in three phases. In the first phase, weak magnetic fields are created by the Biermann battery mechanism, acting in shocked parts of the intergalactic medium where caustics form(More)
Using large-scale hydrodynamic simulations with heuristic criteria for galaxy formation, we investigate how the galaxy field is related to physical parameters, such as the mass density and the gas temperature. We find that the relation between the galaxy and mass density fields is a function of scale. The bias b(R) ≡ σ g (R)/σ(R), where σ g (R) is the(More)
Cosmological hydrodynamic simulations have significantly improved over the past several years, and we have already shown that the observed properties of Lyman-break galaxies (LBGs) at z = 3 can be explained well by the massive galaxies in the simulations. Here we extend our study to z = 6 and show that we obtain good agreement for the LBGs at the bright-end(More)
