Predicted molecular excitation at high z

Françoise Combes (Observatoire de Paris, LERMA)

Galaxies at high redshift are expected to have different excitation than local ones, first because the cosmic background temperature is higher, and because the star formation rate is higher in average, due to the higher rate of galaxy interaction and mergers, the larger gas fraction, and the shorter dynamical time-scale. Some simple predictions will be presented.
