  • Lyman-α (Lyα) spectra provide insights into the small-scale structure and kinematics of neutral hydrogen (HI) within galaxies as well as the ionization state of the intergalactic medium (IGM). The former defines the intrinsic spectrum of a galaxy, which is modified by the latter. These two effects are degenerate. Using the IllustrisTNG100 simulation, we study the impact of the IGM on Lyα spectral shapes between z ∼ 0 and 5. We compute the distribution of the expected Lyα peaks and of the peak… CONTINUE READING
