  • We present a novel method to simultaneously characterise the star formation law and the interstellar medium properties of galaxies in the Epoch of Reionization (EoR) through the combination of [CII] 158$\mu$m (and its known relation with star formation rate) and CIII]$\lambda$1909{\AA} emission line data. The method, based on a Markov Chain Monte Carlo algorithm, allows to determine the target galaxy average density, $n$, gas metallicity, $Z$, and burstiness parameter, $\kappa_s$, quantifying… CONTINUE READING
