AbstractWe use hydrodynamic cosmological simulations to study damped Ly alpha (DLA) and Lyman limit (LL) absorption at redshifts z = 2-4 in five variants of the cold dark matter scenario: COBE-normalized (CCDM), cluster-normalized (SCDM), and tilted (n = 0.8) Omega (m) = 1 models, as well as open (OCDM) and flat (LCDM) Omega (m) = 0.4 models. Our standard simulations resolve the formation of dense concentrations of neutral gas in halos with circular velocity v
