We combine the galaxy formation model GALFORM with the Photon Dominated Region code UCL − PDR to study the emission from the rotational transitions of CO (CO) in galaxies from z = 0 to z = 6 in the ΛCDM framework. GALFORM is used to predict the molecular (H2) and atomic hydrogen (HI) gas contents of galaxies using the pressure-based empirical star formation… (More)
