« Cosmic Reionization »

Yi Mao
postdoc -

In the first part of the talk, I will give an overview of cosmic reionization: what evidence have we had for the epoch of reionization (EOR)? How can we detect and constrain the EOR more directly in the near future? What cosmological and astrophysical information can we tell from the EOR? How have theorists investigated the EOR by analytical modeling and numerical simulations? In the second part, I will introduce a novel radiative transfer algorithm, F2Ray, that we have developed to significantly speed up the numerical simulation of the EOR, particularly in the scenario involving X-rays.
