Recent Developments in Simulations of Low-mass Star Formation

  • Masahiro N. Machida (a1)

Abstract

In star forming regions, we can observe different evolutionary stages of various objects and phenomena such as molecular clouds, protostellar jets and outflows, circumstellar disks, and protostars. However, it is difficult to directly observe the star formation process itself, because it is veiled by the dense infalling envelope. Numerical simulations can unveil the star formation process in the collapsing gas cloud. Recently, some studies showed protostar formation from the prestellar core stage, in which both molecular clouds and protostars are resolved with sufficient spatial resolution. These simulations showed fragmentation and binary formation, outflow and jet driving, and circumstellar disk formation in the collapsing gas clouds. In addition, the angular momentum transfer and dissipation process of the magnetic field in the star formation process were investigated. In this paper, I review recent developments in numerical simulations of low-mass star formation.
