Accretion and diffusion time-scales in sheets and filaments.


Abstract (from CDS):

A comparison of accretion and (turbulent) magnetic diffusion time-scales for sheets and filaments demonstrates that dense star-forming clouds generally will - under realistic conditions - become supercritical due to mass accretion on time-scales at least an order of magnitude shorter than ambipolar and/or turbulent diffusion time-scales. Thus, ambipolar or turbulent diffusion - while present - is unlikely to control the formation of cores and stars.
