Extreme galaxies during reionization: testing ISM and disc models.


Abstract (from CDS):

We test the ability of equilibrium galactic disc and one-zone interstellar medium (ISM) models to describe the physical and emission properties of quasar hosts, submillimetre galaxies, and Lyman α emitters at z ≳ 6. The size, line widths, star formation rates, black hole accretion rates, gas masses and temperatures, and the relationships between these properties are all well described by our model, and we provide approximate fitting formulae for comparison with future observations. However, comparing our carbon line predictions to observations reveals differences between the ISM at low and high redshifts. Our underestimate of the [Cii] line emission indicates either higher star formation efficiencies in high-redshift molecular clouds or less depletion of metals into dust at fixed metallicity. Further, our overprediction of the CO(6-5)/CO(1-0) ratio suggests that molecular clouds in real high-redshift galaxies have a lower turbulent Mach number and more subthermal CO(6-5) emission than expected owing either to sizes smaller than the local Jeans mass or to a pressure support mechanism other than turbulence.
