The standard cosmological model ($\Lambda$CDM) predicts the existence of the cosmic web: a distribution of matter into sheets and filaments connecting massive halos. However, observational evidence has been elusive due to the low surface brightness of the filaments. Recent deep MUSE/VLT data and upcoming observations offer a promising avenue for Ly$\alpha$ detection, motivating the development of modern theoretical predictions. We use hydrodynamical cosmological simulations run with the AREPO… Expand
