  • Quasars at the High Redshift Frontier 

    Bosman, Sarah Elena Ivana (2017-11-08)
    In recent years the formation of primordial galaxies, cosmic metal enrichment, and hydrogen reionisation have been studied using both refined observations and powerful numerical simulations. High-redshift quasars have ...
  • Numerical Simulations of Galaxy Formation During the Epoch of Reionization 

    Katz, Harley Brooks (2017-10-01)
    This thesis considers various topics and open questions in galaxy formation during the epoch of reionization and presents multiple new computational techniques developed specifically to study this era. This work naturally ...
  • The evolution of dark and luminous structure in massive early-type galaxies 

    Oldham, Lindsay Joanna (2017-09-01)
    In this thesis, I develop and combine strong lensing and dynamical probes of the mass of early-type galaxies (ETGs) in order to improve our understanding of their dark and luminous mass structure and evolution. Firstly, ...
  • Cosmology with Planck: an all-sky temperature and polarisation analysis 

    Crowe, Christopher Michael (Institute of Astronomy, University of Cambridge, 2013-09-28)
    Cosmology is now a precision science. The temperature anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) have been exquisitely mapped by many experiments over the last decade. The Planck satellite was launched in 2009, ...
