Photometric properties of reionization-epoch galaxies in the SIMBA simulations
MetadataShow full item record
We study the photometric properties and sizes of the reionization-epoch galaxies in high-resolution SIMBA cosmological hydrodynamical simulations with box sizes of [25,50]h−1Mpc. Assuming various attenuation laws, we compute photometry by extincting each star particle’s spectrum using the line-of-sight gas metal column density. The predicted ultraviolet luminosity function (UVLF) generally agrees with observations at z = 6, owing to a partial cancellation between the high metallicities of the simulated galaxies and lower dust-to-metal ratios.
