CAUP Seminar - Scouring the Lyman alpha forest - 20 setembro 2013



Scouring the Lyman alpha forest

Rodney N. Guimarães

Observatório Nacional, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil



The evolution models in the interpretation of the spiky area that appears in high z quasars spectra, the lyman alpha forest, will be addressed.
Like a prospector who scours the mouth of a river in search of gold, astrophysicists will do the same with the Lyman alpha forest, but in search of metals not so "precious", galaxies in their initial stage of formation and evidence of the smoothness transition scale of the Universe.
