Impact of inhomogeneous reionization in the Lyman-alpha forest

Published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 2019

We study the impact of patchy reionization in the Lyman-alpha forest. We find a considerably strong effect in the 3D Lya forest power spectra even at low redshifts (z = 2). Also, we analyzed the possibility of using the quadrupole of the 21cm power spectra to mitigate this signal.
