The Epoch of Reionization: observations and simulations

Benoît Semelin

LERMA, Observatoire de Paris


I will first briefly review the current observationnal constraints on the Epoch of Reionization, then I will describe the basic physics of reionization and emission of the 21 cm signal. I will then describe the current status and future prospects of 21cm observations and finally I will present modeling techniques and results obtained from 21 cm simulations.
