Late Reionization and the Thermal History of the Intergalactic Medium

Late Reionization and the Thermal History of the Intergalactic Medium

During reionization, the intergalactic medium was heated to temperatures between 20-30,000 K. I will discuss the parameter space of this heating and the hydrodynamical response of the IGM to it. I will also discuss implications for z > 5 Lyman-α forest observations, which potentially include sight lines through patches of the Universe that were still undergoing reionization at z = 5.5-6.
