The abundance of cosmic voids can be described by an analogue of halo mass functions for galaxy clusters. In this work, we explore a number of void mass functions: from those based on excursion-set theory to new mass functions obtained by modifying h...

© 2014 IOP Publishing Ltd and Sissa Medialab srl . Detection of primordial non-Gaussianity will give us an unprecedented detail of the physics of inflation. As observational probes are now exploring new expanses of the inflationary landscape, it is c... Read More about The Lyman α forest as a tool for disentangling non-Gaussianities.

The effect of cosmic magnetic fields on the metagalactic ionization background inferred from the Lyman α forest (2013)
Journal Article
Chongchitnan, S., & Meiksin, A. (2014). The effect of cosmic magnetic fields on the metagalactic ionization background inferred from the Lyman α forest. Monthly notices, containing papers, abstracts of papers, and reports of the proceedings of the Society, 437(4), 3639-3646. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stt2169

The sources which reionized the intergalactic medium by redshift ̃6 are still unknown. A severe constraint on the ionization process is the low emissivity required to maintain the ionization in the Lya forest. Simulation-calibrated observations sugge...
