We describe a new method for simulating ionizing radiation and supernova feedback in the analogs of low-redshift galactic disks. In this method, which we call star-forming molecular cloud (SFMC) particles, we use a ray-tracing technique to solve the radiative transfer equation for ultraviolet photons emitted by thousands of distinct particles on the fly. Joined with high numerical resolution of 3.8 pc, the realistic description of stellar feedback helps to self-regulate star formation. This new…

We investigate the spatially-resolved star formation rela tion using a galactic disk formed in a comprehensive high-resolution (3.8 pc) simulation. Our new implementation of stellar feedback includes
NEW CONSTRAINTS ON THE ESCAPE OF IONIZING PHOTONS FROM STARBURST GALAXIES USING IONIZATION-PARAMETER MAPPING
The fate of ionizing radiation in starburst galaxies is key to understanding cosmic reionization. However, the galactic parameters on which the escape fraction of ionizing radiation depend are not
Fluctuating feedback-regulated escape fraction of ionizing radiation in low-mass, high-redshift galaxies
Low mass galaxies are thought to provide the bulk of the ionizing radiation necessary to reionize the Universe. The amount of photons escaping the galaxies is poorly constrained theoretically, and
Stellar Radiation Is Critical for Regulating Star Formation and Driving Outflows in Low-mass Dwarf Galaxies
Effective stellar feedback is used in models of galaxy formation to drive realistic galaxy evolution. Models typically include energy injection from supernovae as the dominant form of stellar

We demonstrate a new method for measuring the escape fraction of ionizing photons using Hubble Space Telescope imaging of resolved stars in NGC 4214, a local analog of high-redshift starburst
Simulating an isolated dwarf galaxy with multichannel feedback and chemical yields from individual stars
In order to better understand the relationship between feedback and galactic chemical evolution, we have developed a new model for stellar feedback at grid resolutions of only a few parsecs in global
High-redshift Galaxy Formation with Self-consistently Modeled Stars and Massive Black Holes: Stellar Feedback and Quasar Growth
As computational resolution of modern cosmological simulations reach ever so close to resolving individual star-forming clumps in a galaxy, a need for "resolution-appropriate" physics for a
The First Billion Years project: the escape fraction of ionizing photons in the epoch of reionization
Proto-galaxies forming in low-mass dark matter haloes are thought to provide the majority of ionizing photons needed to reionize the Universe, due to their high escape fractions of ionizing photons.
The impact of radiation feedback on the assembly of star clusters in a galactic context
Massive star clusters are observed in galaxies spanning a broad range of luminosities and types, and are assumed to form in dense gas-rich environments. Using a parsec-resolution hydrodynamical
Variable interstellar radiation fields in simulated dwarf galaxies: supernovae versus photoelectric heating
We present high-resolution hydrodynamical simulations of isolated dwarf galaxies including self-gravity, non-equilibrium cooling and chemistry, interstellar radiation fields (ISRF) and shielding,
