Context. The intergalactic medium (IGM) is believed to contain the majority of baryons in the universe and to trace the same dark matter structure as galaxies, forming filaments and sheets. Lyα absorbers, which sample the neutral component of the IGM, have been extensively studied at low and high redshift, but the exact relation between Lyα absorption, galaxies and the large-scale structure is observationally not well-constrained. Aims. In this study, we aim at characterising the relation… Expand
