Galaxy Evolution with a Wideband Receiver at 1-15 GHz
Twenty-twomembers in the mailing list (from students to senior researchers with wide range of expertise).
Representative: Hiroyuki HIRASHITA (ASIAA,Taiwan)

The high-z working group is open to anyone.
If you would like to participate in this working group, please let us know.
Here we concentrate on a frequency range of 1-15 GHz,possibly contributed from Japanese instrumentation.
H2O maser: 22 GHz (z > 0.5)
NH3lines: 23.7 GHz (z > 0.5)
H I emission line: 1.4 GHz (z < 0.4)
CO absorption lines: z > 6.7
Possible important sciences for lower frequencies:redshifted H I: 1.4/(1 + z) GHz for cosmology (Part II)
In this talk, direct contributions from the WG members are indicated by .
2.1 H2O maser (22 GHz; z > 0.5)
Two detections so far for z > 0.5

environments (accretion disk or AGN jets)
2.2 NH3 lines (23.7 GHz; z > 0.5)
Level population of various rotational states
⇒We can trace the excitationtemperature.
Interesting viable way to explore the state of the ISM in high-z galaxies.
2.3H I emission (21 cm; z < 0.4)
Baryonic Tully-Fisher relation (BTF) (McGaugh et al. 2000)
Important empirical relation connecting the halo (dynamical) mass and baryon content. Especially important for very late type galaxies (H I-dominated in baryonic content).
HIPASS result (Meyer et al. 2008):
which is steeper than luminosity TF. However, it is still too shallow.
Some recent works showed a possible downward deviation from a single power law.
2.3H I emission (21 cm; z < 0.4)
The “extended” BTF (McGaugh et al. 2010)
The slope becomes steeper from the largest to the smallest structures (clusters: violet symbols, giant galaxies: blue symbols, and dwarf spheroidals: red symbols).
⇒ Possible effect of feedback?
However, gaseous dwarfs are missing on this plot.
Toward lower H I masses!
2.4 CO absorption lines (z > 6.7)
Molecular absorption lines in -ray burst afterglows
Probe of physical and chemical conditions in high-zISM.
1-15 GHz continuum ~ 0.1-1 mJy at tobs~10 days for z = 5-30
t vs. n, Z in protostellar clouds
expected afterglow spectra
Inoue, Omukai, & Ciardi (2007)
Synchrotron from supernova remnants
⇒ Related to star formation activity
> 15/(1+z) GHz is favorable to avoid f-f absorption in dense (> 103cm-3) regions
Potentially interesting area for very young galaxies
(5) Radio continuum from galaxies
Expected observed-frame 1.4 GHz flux density for galaxies of various IR luminosities assuming the FIR–radio correlation (qIR = 2.64) is shown (Murphy 2009).
N.B. Cosmic ray electrons lose energy through inverse Compton scattering of the CMB, and nonthermal continuum is strongly suppressed at high-z.
To detect moderate LIRGs at z = 4-10, the detection limit of 10 nJy is required.
N.B. a special imaging technique to deal with a large dynamic range should also be developed.

Exploring Non-Gaussianity in the Primordial Perturbation with 21-cm Line Tomography
CMB, LSS observations
⇒ nature of primordial fluctuations
⇒ physics of the early Universe.
Current observations predict that the primordial fluctuation has almost Gaussian statisticsas expected from the linear perturbation theory.
Now the primordial non-Gaussianity is hitting the limelight of cosmologists (Komatsu & Spergel 2001, and many others!)
Non-Gaussianity is a very broad category and until recently no systematic way to investigate it was known , in spite of enormous theoretical effort made in 90’s.
The situation has dramatically changed by the introduction of the nonlinearity parameter, fNL. The primordial perturbation F is described as
Non-zero fNL gives
Higher order contribution in the power spectrum (2-point correlation function.)
Leading order contribution in the bispectrum (3-point correlation function) !!
(central value ~40 …??)
Future CMB observations: Planck
2.1 The 21-cm signal from neutral hydrogen gas
21 cm hydrogen line: 1.4 GHz
⇒ 1.4/(1+z) GHz @redshift z
z = 100 – 30 ⇔ 14 MHz – 47 MHz
: spin temperature of H I.
: optical depth for the hyperfine transition.
Fluctuation in the brightness temperature
density fluctuations of neutral gas
Loeb and Zaldarriaga (2004)
The bispectrum (Fourier transformed 3-point correlation) of the CMB brightness temperature map can be used to estimate fNL efficiently (Cooray 2006).
