Finding the best fit of bright light

1. Run trial models to get a rough fit

⇒ Ncl∼ 105; Vout∼ 150 km s-1

2. Run grid with Ncl∈ [104.5,105.5] and

Vout∈ [100,200] km s-1

3. Fit skewed Gaußians

4. Measure

a) Red peak FWHM

b) Peak separation

c) Peak height ratio

d) Peak flux ratio

d) Peak flux ratio

5. Calculate number of std. dev.sbetween

synthetic and observed spectra

6. Identify best fitting model

and those for which all four fitting

parameters fall within 1σ


Results of bright light

Best-fitting models give:

Vout= 160 km s-1

log(NHI/cm-2) = 20.23

Ncl= 2±1

Conclusion of bright light

• Fitting Lya lines requires information about several parameters.

A simple spectrum isn’t really enough.
