Detailed studies of cloud cores: probing the initial conditions for protostellar collapse.

ANDRE P., BELLOCHE A., HENNEBELLE P. and WARD-THOMPSON D.

Abstract (from CDS):

Improving our understanding of the earliest stages of star formation is crucial to gain insight into the origin of stellar masses, multiple systems and protoplanetary disks. We discuss recent advances made in this area thanks to detailed mapping observations at infrared and (sub)millimeter wavelengths. Although ambipolar diffusion appears to be too slow to play a direct role in the formation of dense cores, there is nevertheless good evidence that the gravitational collapse of isolated protostellar cores is strongly magnetically controlled. We also argue that the beginning of protostellar collapse is much more violent in cluster-forming clouds than in regions of distributed star formation.
