Massive core/star formation triggered by cloud-cloud collision: Effect of magnetic field

22 Jul 2020 Sakre Nirmit Habe Asao Pettitt Alex R. Okamoto Takashi

We study effect of magnetic field on massive dense core formation in colliding unequal molecular clouds by performing magnetohydrodynamic simulations with sub-parsec resolution (0.015 pc) that can resolve the molecular cores. Initial clouds with the typical gas density of the molecular clouds are immersed in various uniform magnetic fields... (read more)
