G.A.S. I: A prescription for turbulence-regulated star formation and its impact on galaxy properties

29 Jan 2019 Cousin M. Guillard P. Lehnert M. D.

Star formation in galaxies is inefficient, and understanding how star formation is regulated in galaxies is one of the most fundamental challenges of contemporary astrophysics. Radiative cooling, feedback from supernovae and active galactic nuclei, large-scale dynamics and dissipation of turbulent energy act over various time and spatial scales, and all regulate star formation in a complex gas cycle...
