The contribution of globular clusters to cosmic reionization
Author(s): Ma, Xiangcheng; Quataert, Eliot; Wetzel, Andrew; Faucher-Giguere, Claude-Andre; Boylan-Kolchin, Michael | Abstract: We study the escape fraction of ionizing photons (f_esc) in two
Pushing back the limits: detailed properties of dwarf galaxies in a ΛCDM universe
We present the results of a set of high-resolution chemo-dynamical simulations of dwarf galaxies in a ΛCDM cosmology. Out of an original (3.4 Mpc/h)3 cosmological box, a sample of 27 systems are

Physical Properties of Massive Compact Starburst Galaxies with Extreme Outflows
We present results on the nature of extreme ejective feedback episodes and the physical conditions of a population of massive (M * ∼ 1011 M ⊙), compact starburst galaxies at z = 0.4–0.7. We use data
The little Galaxies that could (reionize the universe): predicting faint end slopes & escape fractions at z>4
The sources that reionized the universe are still unknown, but likely candidates are faint but numerous galaxies. In this paper we present results from running a high resolution, uniform volume
A Window on the Earliest Star Formation: Extreme Photoionization Conditions of a High-ionization, Low-metallicity Lensed Galaxy at z ∼ 2*
We report new observations of SL2SJ021737-051329, a lens system consisting of a bright arc at z=1.84435, magnified ~17x by a massive galaxy at z=0.65. SL2SJ0217 is a low-mass (M <10^9 M*),
Ionizing the intergalactic medium by star clusters: the first empirical evidence
We present a VLT/X-Shooter spectroscopy of the Lyman continuum (LyC) emitting galaxy Ion2 at z = 3.2121 and compare it to that of the recently discovered strongly lensed LyC emitter at z = 2.37,
Intergalactic magnetogenesis at Cosmic Dawn by photoionization
We present a detailed analysis of an astrophysical mechanism that generates cosmological magnetic fields during the Epoch of Reionization. It is based on the photoionization of the Intergalactic
The epoch of reionization in the Rh = ct universe
The measured properties of the epoch of reionization (EoR) show that reionization probably began around z ~ 12-15 and ended by z=6. In addition, a careful analysis of the fluctuations in the cosmic

The Brightest of Reionizing Galaxies Survey: Constraints on the Bright End of the z ~ 8 Luminosity Function
We report the discovery of 33 Lyman-break galaxy candidates at z ~ 8 detected in Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) imaging as part of the Brightest of Reionizing Galaxies (BoRG)
A luminous quasar at a redshift of z = 7.085
TLDR
Observations of a quasar at a redshift of 7.3 are reported, suggesting that the neutral fraction of the intergalactic medium in front of ULAS J1120+0641 exceeded 0.1.

Massive stars provide feedback that shapes the interstellar medium of galaxies at all redshifts and their resulting stellar populations. Here we present three adaptive mesh refinement radiation
Early reionization by the first galaxies
Large-scale polarization of the cosmic microwave background measured by the WMAP satellite requires a mean optical depth to Thomson scattering, τ e ∼ 0.17. The reionization of the Universe must

Detection of the radiation emitted from the first galaxies at z ≥ 10 will be made possible in the next decade, with the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). We carry out cosmological
Radiative Transfer in a Clumpy Universe. III. The Nature of Cosmological Ionizing Sources
The history of the transition from a neutral intergalactic medium (IGM) to one that is almost fully ionized can reveal the character of cosmological ionizing sources. We study the evolution of the
