Cosmology flat ΛCDM model, adiabatic scalar density perturbations, three species of massless neutrinos.
Star-forming efficiency Sahlén & Zackrisson 2021 double power law.
Dust extinction a standard dust extinction multiplied by fAUV is subtracted (set fAUV = 0 for no dust extinction).
Data the Bouwens et al. 2015 galaxy LF is overlaid if the value for z matches one of the redshift bins of the data (4-10). Note that Δz need not match.
Lum. func. fiducial cosmology Ωm = 0.3, h = 0.7
Note: the default parameter values have been calibrated to give a good fit to the Bouwens et al. 2015 luminosity function for z = 4 - 10 and the Harikane et al. 2018 correlation function data for z = 4 - 7.


The computations and availability of GalaxyMC Cloud are enabled by resources provided by the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) at Chalmers Centre for Computational Science and Engineering (C3SE), High Performance Computing Center North (HPC2N) and Uppsala Multidisciplinary Center for Advanced Computational Science (UPPMAX) under project SNIC 2021/18-10, partially funded by the Swedish Research Council through grant agreements no. 2016-07213 and 2018-05973. The development of GalaxyMC and galaxymc.cloud has been supported by Olle Engkvist Foundation, Lundström-Åman Foundation, Filén Foundation, the Fulbright Commission, Helge Ax:son Johnson Foundation, Längmanska Foundation, and Lars Hierta Memorial Foundation.
