Observational Diagnostics of Self-Gravitating MHD Turbulence in Giant Molecular Clouds

14 May 2015 Burkhart Blakesley Collins David C. Lazarian Alex

We study the observable signatures of self-gravitating MHD turbulence by applying the probability density functions (PDFs) and the spatial density power spectrum to synthetic column density maps. We find that there exists three characterizable stages of the evolution of the collapsing cloud which we term "early," "intermediate," and "advanced.".. (read more)
