Astronomy Colloquium: "Simulating Reionization: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow", Nick Gnedin, Fermilab

I will review the field of numerical simulations of cosmic reionization:

the process of ionizing of intergalactic medium by high redshift

galaxies and quasars. I will describe the main physical processes that

are important for modeling reionization, explain how these processes are

incorporated in computer simulations, and will use simulations to gain

insight into the actual reionization process. I will finish with an

illustration of how the exponential progress in computer industry allows

us to solve problems that we could not even dream about mere 10 years ago.
