We present the photometric properties of galaxies in the First Light and Reionisation Epoch Simulations (Flares). The simulations trace the evolution of galaxies in a range of overdensities through the Epoch of Reionistion (EoR). With a novel weighting scheme we combine these overdensities, extending significantly the dynamic range of observed composite distribution functions compared to periodic simulation boxes. Flares predicts a significantly larger number of intrinsically bright galaxies…

Binary evolution pathways of blue large-amplitude pulsators
Blue large-amplitude pulsators (BLAPs) are a recently discovered class of pulsating star, believed to be proto-white dwarfs, produced by mass stripping of a red giant when it has a small helium
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
