Abstract:We study the inhomogeneity of the reionization process by comparing the reionization times of z = 0 galaxies as a function of their mass. For this purpose, we combine the results of the CODA-I AMR radiative hydrodynamics simulation of the Reionization with the halo merger trees of a pure dark matter tree-code z = 0 simulation evolved from the same set of initial conditions. We find that galaxies with M(z = 0) > 1011M ⊙ are reionized earlier than the whole Universe, with e.g. MW-like haloes reionized between … Show more
