Spectral Signature of Cosmological Infall Around the First Quasars

Abstract

The massive galaxies hosting the earliest supermassive black holes only a billion years after the big bang are expected to be surrounded by a large volume of infalling gas. This infall is halted at the boundary of the host galactic halo by a shock. Here we show that this generic infall pattern imprints a unique signature on the Lyα emission-line profile of… (More)
