Protostellar X-Rays, Jets, and Bipolar Outflows

  • Frank H. Shu (a1) and Hsien Shang (a1)

Abstract

We review the theory of x-winds in young stellar objects (YSOs). In particular, we consider how a model where the central star does not corotate with the inner edge of the accretion disk may help to explain the enhanced emission of X-rays from embedded protostars. We argue, however, that the departure from corotation is not large, so a mathematical formulation that treats the long-term average state as steady and axisymmetric represents a useful approximation. Magnetocentrifugally driven x-winds of this description collimate into jets, and their interactions with the surrounding molecular cloud cores of YSOs yield bipolar molecular outflows.
