Sample variance and Lyman α forest transmission statistics
We compare the observed probability distribution function (PDF) of the transmission in the H i Lyman {$α$} forest, measured from the Ultraviolet and Visual Echelle Spectrograph (UVES) `Large
QSO Metal Absorption Systems at High Redshift and the Signature of Hierarchical Galaxy Formation
In a hierarchical cosmogony, galaxies build up by continuous merging of smaller structures. At z = 3, the matter content of a typical present-day galaxy is dispersed over several individual clumps
Cosmological radiative transfer and the lonisation of the integalactic medium
Gravitational instability during the evolution of the Universe formed a large scale filamentary structure, known as the cosmic web. Baryons embedded in this cosmic web constitute the intergalactic
HIRES Spectroscopy of APM 08279+5255: Metal Abundances in the Lyα Forest*
We present high-S/N echelle spectra of the recently discovered ultraluminous QSO APM 08279+5255 and use these data to reexamine the abundance of carbon in Ly? forest clouds. In agreement with
On the Origin of Metallicity in Lyα Forest Systems
We investigate the hypothesis that Ly? absorption lines arise in two populations of halos?minihalos of small circular velocity (Vc 55 km s-1), in which star formation and metal production are
Hunting for metals using XQ-100 Legacy Survey composite spectra
We investigate the NV absorption signal along the line of sight of background quasars, in order to test the robustness of the use of this ion as criterion to select intrinsic (i.e. physically related

Triple-ionized carbon associated with the low-density neutral hydrogen gas at 1.7
TLDR
It is expected if the line-of-sight extent of CIV is smaller than HI and N(CIV,sys) decreases more rapidly than N(HI, sys) at the larger impact parameter, regardless of the location of the HI+CIV gas in the IGM filaments or in the intervening galactic halos.
The broadening of Lyman-α forest absorption lines
We provide an analytical description of the line broadening of H I absorbers in the Lyman-α forest resulting from Doppler broadening and Jeans smoothing. We demonstrate that our relation captures the
THE GASEOUS ENVIRONMENT OF HIGH-z GALAXIES: PRECISION MEASUREMENTS OF NEUTRAL HYDROGEN IN THE CIRCUMGALACTIC MEDIUM OF z ∼ 2-3 GALAXIES IN THE KECK BARYONIC STRUCTURE SURVEY*
We present results from the Keck Baryonic Structure Survey (KBSS), a unique spectroscopic survey of the distant universe designed to explore the details of the connection between galaxies and
