Abstract

The correlation between 21 cm fluctuations and galaxies is sensitive to the astrophysical properties of the galaxies that drove reionization. Thus, detailed measurements of the crosspower spectrum and its evolution could provide a powerful measurement of both the properties of early galaxies and the process of reionization. In this paper, we study the evolution of the cross-power spectrum between 21 cm emission and galaxies using a model which combines the hierarchical galaxy formation model GALFORM implemented within the Millennium-II dark matter simulation, with a semi-numerical scheme to describe the resulting ionization structure. We find that inclusion of different feedback processes ch..
