We present a framework for high-redshift ( z ≳ 7 ?> ) galaxy formation that traces their dark matter (DM) and baryonic assembly in four cosmologies: cold dark matter (CDM) and warm dark matter (WDM) with particle masses of m x ?> = 1.5, 3, and 5 keV ?> . We use the same astrophysical parameters regulating star formation and feedback, chosen to match current observations of the evolving ultraviolet luminosity function (UV LF). We find that the assembly of observable (with current and upcoming… 
Reionization and Galaxy Formation in Warm Dark Matter Cosmologies
We compare model results from a semi-analytic (merger-tree based) framework for high-redshift (z ≃ 5–20) galaxy formation against reionization indicators, including the Planck electron scattering
Clues to the nature of dark matter from first galaxies
We use 38 high-resolution simulations of galaxy formation between redshift 10 and 5 to study the impact of a 3 keV warm dark matter (WDM) candidate on the high-redshift Universe. We focus our
The galaxy population in cold and warm dark matter cosmologies
We use a pair of high-resolution N-body simulations implementing two dark matter models, namely the standard cold dark matter (CDM) cosmogony and a warm dark matter (WDM) alternative where the dark
Predictions for the abundance of high-redshift galaxies in a fuzzy dark matter universe
During the last decades, rapid progress has been made in measurements of the rest-frame ultraviolet (UV) luminosity function (LF) for high-redshift galaxies (z ≥ 6). The faint-end of the galaxy LF
Astroparticle Constraints from Cosmic Reionization and Primordial Galaxy Formation
. We derive astroparticle constraints in different dark matter scenarios alternative to cold dark matter (CDM): thermal relic warm dark matter, WDM; fuzzy dark matter, ψ DM; self-interacting dark
Constraints on warm dark matter from UV luminosity functions of high-z galaxies with Bayesian model comparison
The number density of small dark matter (DM) haloes hosting faint high-redshift galaxies is sensitive to the DM free-streaming properties. However, constraining these DM properties is complicated
Warm dark matter constraints from high-z direct collapse black holes using the JWST
We use a semi-analytic model, Delphi, which jointly tracks the dark matter and baryonic assembly of high-redshift (z ≃ 4-20) galaxies to gain insight on the number density of dicollapse black hole
Galaxy Formation in Sterile Neutrino Dark Matter Models
We investigate galaxy formation in models with dark matter (DM) constituted by sterile neutrinos. Given their large parameter space, defined by the combinations of sterile neutrino mass and mixing
CONSTRAINING WARM DARK MATTER MASS WITH COSMIC REIONIZATION AND GRAVITATIONAL WAVES
We constrain the warm dark matter (WDM) particle mass with observations of cosmic reionization and CMB optical depth. We suggest that the gravitational waves (GWs) from stellar-mass black holes (BHs)
Galaxy UV-luminosity function and reionization constraints on axion dark matter
If the dark matter (DM) were composed of axions, then structure formation in the Universe would be suppressed below the axion Jeans scale. Using an analytic model for the halo mass function of a
