Fragmentation of molecular clouds and star formation: proceedings of the th Symposium of the International Astronomical Union, held in Grenoble, France, June , Author: E Falgarone ; F Boulanger ; G Duvert ; International Astronomical Union. Star formation can be considered to start when a molecular cloud fragments into many clumps. Many different physical processes are likely to play an important role in star formation. A possible favorable scenario is a mixed model involving gravitational fragmentation of turbulent molecular clouds close to magnetic criticality. The evolution of the magnetic field and angular momentum in individual cloud cores after the onset of gravitational collapse . A molecular cloud the size of the Orion-A nebula (one of the nearest star-formation regions, with a postcollapse radius ∼ 85 ly and mass ∼ × 10 5 M) [28] would, if collapse started at.

This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves. Magnetic Fields play a key role in the physics of star formation on all scales: from the formation of the large complexes of molecular clouds to the formation of solar-like planetary systems. The plasma physics involved is non-linear and very . A possible favorable scenario is a mixed model involving gravitational fragmentation of turbulent molecular clouds close to magnetic criticality. The evolution of the magnetic field and angular momentum in individual cloud cores after the onset of gravitational collapse is also discussed.
