Open Source

ZEBRA, the Zurich Extragalactic Bayesian Redshift Analyzer, is a publicly available, open source software package that computes photometric redshifts with outstanding accuracy. A detailed description of the approach adopted by ZEBRA can be found in Feldmann et al. 2006. More information about ZEBRA is also available on its dedicated website. You can clone ZEBRA directly from its bit-bucket repository.

Intergalactic gas in a cosmological box
A cosmological volume in form of a cube with edges 24 million light years long. The camera is rotating to show the volume from all sides. Shown about 3 billion years after the Big Bang, the intergalactic gas forms elaborate structures of filaments, clusters, and voides. Galaxies form in regions of high gas density within this 'cosmic web'. [11 MB]
Gas and stars in a cosmological box
A camera zoom through a cosmological volume in form of a cube with edges 24 million light years long. Shown about 3 billion years after the Big Bang, the intergalactic gas forms elaborate structures of filaments, clusters, and voides. Galaxies (shown in red) form in regions of high gas density within this 'cosmic web'. [25 MB]
A MassiveFIRE galaxy A MassiveFIRE galaxy
A MassiveFIRE galaxy A MassiveFIRE galaxy
Examples of MassiveFIRE galaxies. Panels in the top row and at the bottom left show composite U, V, and J band images that account for dust absorption. The panel at the bottom right shows the gas distribution for the galaxy in the bottom left panel in false colors: blue, green, and red denote density, gas metallicity, and gas temperature. For instance, hot diffuse gas is shown in red, dense, metal rich gas in cyan, and dense, unenriched gas in a dark blue. [each movie is about 12 MB]
Galaxies in the Argo simulation
Evolution of galaxies in the Argo simulation. The movie shows the gas surface density in green and stars in purple/yellow. [17 MB]
Zoom-in on the central galaxy in the Argo simulation
Zoom-in on the central galaxy in the Argo simulation. The movie shows the gas surface density in green and stars in purple/yellow. [18 MB]
Evolution of a galaxy group
This movie shows how a galaxy group forms and evolves with cosmic time. The color channels correspond to B, R, and I filter bands. [3 MB]

Images

False color images of the intergalactic gas in a cosmological simulation of a galaxy group (click on image for high-resolution version). The shown region is approximately 0.6 Mpc (top left image) and 2 Mpc (other images) across. The simulation has been run with the AMR code RAMSES. The top and middle images on the left-hand side show gas density, gas metallicity, and gas temperature in the blue, green, and red color channel, respectively. For instance, hot un-enriched, diffuse gas is shown in red, dense, cool, metal rich gas in cyan, and dense, cool, unenriched gas in a dark blue. The other images show the same quantities but adopt different color-schemes.
