Abstract: The observed Lyα line from a galaxy is attenuated by a neutral intergalactic medium. We calculate the effect that patchy reionization has on the luminosity function, and, most interestingly, on the clustering of Lyα emitters from simulations of the Reionization Epoch. Reionization increases the clustering of emitters, and this enhancement would be difficult to attribute to anything other than reionization.
