In cosmology, baryon acoustic oscillations (BAO) are regular, periodic fluctuations in the density of the visible baryonic matter (normal matter) of the universe.
Cosmology (from the Greek κόσμος, kosmos "world" and -λογία, -logia "study of") is the study of the origin, evolution, and eventual fate of the universe.

Damped Lyman alpha systems or Damped Lyman alpha absorption systems are concentrations of neutral hydrogen gas, detected in the spectra of quasars.
Dark matter is a theorized form of matter that is thought to account for approximately 80% of the matter in the universe, and about a quarter of its total energy density.

A galaxy is a gravitationally bound system of stars, stellar remnants, interstellar gas, dust, and dark matter.
New!!: Lyman-alpha emitter and Galaxy ·
In astronomy, the interstellar medium (ISM) is the matter and radiation that exists in the space between the star systems in a galaxy.
The Lyman limit is the short-wavelength end of the hydrogen Lyman series, at.
New!!: Lyman-alpha emitter and Lyman limit ·
In physics and chemistry, the Lyman series is a hydrogen spectral series of transitions and resulting ultraviolet emission lines of the hydrogen atom as an electron goes from n ≥ 2 to n.
New!!: Lyman-alpha emitter and Lyman series ·
In astronomy, a Lyman-alpha blob (LAB) is a huge concentration of a gas emitting the Lyman-alpha emission line.
In astronomical spectroscopy, the Lyman-alpha forest is a series of absorption lines in the spectra of distant galaxies and quasars arising from the Lyman-alpha electron transition of the neutral hydrogen atom.
Lyman-break galaxies are star-forming galaxies at high redshift that are selected using the differing appearance of the galaxy in several imaging filters due to the position of the Lyman limit.
In astronomy, metallicity is used to describe the abundance of elements present in an object that are heavier than hydrogen or helium.

The Milky Way is the galaxy that contains our Solar System.

Radiative transfer is the physical phenomenon of energy transfer in the form of electromagnetic radiation.
In physics, redshift happens when light or other electromagnetic radiation from an object is increased in wavelength, or shifted to the red end of the spectrum.
