CAMB: Reionization maximum redshift

Post by David Parkinson » February 17 2009

In the CAMB reionization module there is a maximum redshift that reionization can occur, which is set to 40. Is this constant arbitrary (to allow for a quick convergance in computing the details of reionization), or is there some important consequences for the details of the calculation if its value were to be increased (say to 60)?

A previous post on the matter (http://cosmocoffee.info/viewtopic.php?t=1191) indicated it would not be a serious matter if it was changed, but I was wondering if anyone had tried changing it before, and what happened.

Thanks.

I think you should be able to change it OK (within reason).
