[85.04] Radiative Feedback and the Photoevaporation of Intergalactic Clouds

P. R. Shapiro (Univ. of Texas at Austin), A. C. Raga (Univ. Nacional Autonoma de Mexico), G. Mellema (Stockholm Obs.)

The first sources of ionizing radiation to condense out of the dark and neutral IGM sent ionization fronts sweeping outward through their surroundings, overtaking other primordial gas-clouds and photoevaporating them. Results are presented of the first gas dynamical simulations of this process, including radiative transfer, along with some observational diagnostics.
