We report the discovery of diffuse extended Lyα emission from redshift 3.1 to 4.5, tracing cosmic web filaments on scales of 2.5−4 cMpc. These structures have been observed in overdensities of Lyα emitters in the MUSE Extremely Deep Field, a 140 h deep MUSE observation located in the Hubble Ultra-Deep Field. Among the 22 overdense regions identified, five are likely to harbor very extended Lyα emission at high significance with an average surface brightness of 5 × 10−20 erg s−1 cm−2 arcsec−2… 
Semi-supervised multiple testing
An important limitation of standard multiple testing procedures is that the null distribution should be known. Here, we consider a null distribution-free approach for multiple testing in the
Ly α as a tracer of cosmic reionization in the SPHINX radiation-hydrodynamics cosmological simulation
The Lyα emission line is one of the most promising probes of cosmic reionisation but isolating the signature of a change in the ionisation state of the IGM is challenging because of intrinsic
Prospects for observing the low-density cosmic web in Lyman-α emission
Mapping the intergalactic medium (IGM) in Lyman-$\alpha$ emission would yield unprecedented tomographic information on the large-scale distribution of baryons and potentially provide new constraints
The physical origins and dominant emission mechanisms of Lyman alpha haloes: results from the TNG50 simulation in comparison to MUSE observations
Extended Lyman alpha emission is now commonly detected around high-redshift galaxies through stacking and even on individual basis. Despite recent observational advances, the physical origin of
Toward Precision Cosmology with Improved PNLF Distances Using VLT-MUSEI. Methodology and Tests
The [O iii] λ5007 planetary nebula luminosity function (PNLF) is an established distance indicator that has been used for more than 30 yr to measure the distances of galaxies out to ∼15 Mpc. With the

Extended Lyman-alpha emission from cold accretion streams
{Abridged} We investigate the observability of cold accretion streams at redshift 3 via Lyman-alpha (Lya) emission and the feasibility of cold accretion as the main driver of Lya blobs (LABs). We run
The stellar-to-halo mass relation over the past 12 Gyr
Understanding how galaxy properties are linked to the dark matter halos they reside in, and how they co-evolve is a powerful tool to constrain the processes related to galaxy formation. The
Gas filaments of the cosmic web located around active galaxies in a protocluster
The detection of rest-frame ultraviolet Lyman-α radiation from multiple filaments extending more than one megaparsec between galaxies within the SSA22 protocluster at a redshift of 3.1 is reported.
