Simulation representing the second stage of the cosmic reionization, showing the evolution of the hydrogen ionization fronts in the IGM. The volume is (5.3 Mpc)3 in comoving units and contains ten randomly distributed clusters of massive population II/I stars following a Kroupa IMF. The radiation of the clusters is able to reionize the hydrogen content of the simulation volume within the redshift interval from z ~ 10 to z ~ 5.8. (Δt is the time interval since the beginning of the simulation at z = 10).
