To obtain a quantitative picture of both low and high-mass star-formation, we require observations of alarger sample, by studying the tens of thousands of unresolved YSOs seen in nearbystar-formingregions(e.g.,Taurus-Auriga,Perseus,Orion) as well as more distant star-forming regions (e.g., M16, M17, NGC ).

We observed the J=9−8 and 10−9 rotational lines of three 13C isotopologues of HC3N in L and G with the m radio telescope of the Nobeyama Radio Observatory in order to constrain the main formation mechanisms of HC3N in each source. The abundance ratios of the three 13C isotopologues of HC3N are found to be (±): (±) (1σ) and . We have performed IZJHKL′ observations in NGC , the young cluster that ionises the Eagle Nebula. We have discovered a rich pre-main sequence concentrated around the O-stars in the cluster.

Searches for _____, (another name for protoplanetary disks), in the Orion Nebula have shown that such disks are found around most low mass young stars, which means that planet formation is an expected byproduct of star formation. Most stars born in clusters and recent results suggest that star formation (SF) preferentially occurs in subclusters.

In the early s, optical polarimetric observations revealed the existence of elongated and flattened circumstellar dust material around some Pre-Main-Sequence (PMS) stars such as the low-mass TTauri stars, similar to the Sun when it was about 1 0 6 years old. A few years later, observations from the InfraRed Astronomical Satellite (IRAS) found significant Cited by: 1.

Based on spectroscopic diagnostics, an evolutionary sequence for FUors is found, which fits into the general paradigm of low-mass star formation. Finally, a deep near-infrared survey in the Taurus star-forming region reveals numerous new candidates for young low-mass stars and Brown Dwarfs surrounded by circumstellar : Sascha Patrick Quanz.

Measuring the density, mass, and kinematics of the ionized gas in these regions tells us about the state of the interstellar medium in young star-forming regions and about the massive stars. Circumstellar disks are an essential ingredient of the formation of low-mass stars, but it is unclear whether they are also required for the formation of stars more massive than about 10 solar by: Low-Mass Stars and Accretion at the Ages of Planet Formation in the Cepheus OB2 Region Aurora Sicilia-Aguilar et al.

The infall velocity is estimated to be in the range of km s −1 to 1 km s −1 with an implied mass accretion rate of between 2×10 −4 M⊙/yr and 10 −3 M⊙/yr. Key words. Stars: formation – ISM: molecules – ISM: kinematics and dynamics – HII regions 1.

There are many molecular clouds that form only (or mainly) low-mass stars. Because low-mass stars do not have strong winds and do not die by exploding, triggered star formation cannot occur in these clouds. There are also stars that form in relative isolation in small cores.

Therefore, not all star formation is originally triggered by the death. These are the first detections of solid methanol in the circumstellar environments of embedded young low-mass stars providing evidence that complex molecular species previously observed only in the solid state toward high-mass star forming regions are also present near solar-type young stars.

The discovery of large numbers of young low-mass stars and brown dwarfs over the past decade has made it possible to investigate star formation and early evolution in a previously unexplored mass regime.

In this review, we begin by describing surveys for low-mass members of nearby associations, open clusters, star-forming regions, and the methods used to characterize their Cited by:   The Sun did not form in a region like Taurus-Auriga.

Rather, like most low-mass stars ([4][4]), the Sun formed in a high-mass star-forming region where one or more stars went supernova. Understanding our origins means understanding the process of low-mass star formation in environments that are shaped by the presence of massive by: Like the general circumstellar habitable zone, the continuously habitable zone of a star is divided into a conservative and extended region.

[86] In red dwarf systems, gigantic stellar flares which could double a star's brightness in minutes [87] and huge starspots which can cover 20% of the star's surface area, [88] have the potential to strip an otherwise habitable planet of its.

From low-mass star forming regions, we know that the sizes of circumstellar disks vary from a few hundred to tens of AU. Therefore, for an average massive young stellar object at 3 kpc, a resolution of ″ or less (corresponding to AU) is needed to resolve a by: 5.

Our calculations indicate that the low-mass companions may form in the circumstellar disk in the main accretion phase. In addition, the mass accretion rate onto the protostar shows a strong time variability that is caused by the torque from the low-mass companions and/or the spiral arms in the circumstellar disk.

This work presents four studies on the environments where massive stars evolve and how these stars influence their surroundings as they age. The first two studies investigate properties associated with high-mass stars themselves and the signatures of their own formation. The theory of mass accretion via a circumstellar disk is a leading hypothesis for the formation of high-mass : Brandon Marshall.

The theory of low-mass star formation, which is well-supported by observation suggests that low-mass stars form by the gravitational collapse of rotating density enhancements within molecular clouds.

As described above, the collapse of a rotating cloud of gas and dust leads to the formation of an accretion disk through which matter is channeled onto a central protostar.

Low-Mass Star Formation. Most of the initial gas mass in the Milky Way has been converted into stars. While massive stars and their final stages dominate the energy input into the interstellar medium, low-mass stars constitute most of the total mass in our galaxy.

Stars generally form through a fragmented collapse of a molecular cloud as a group or cluster. This simple picture seems to be generally true but bears many unsolved details. The complete initial mass function of such groups is still unknown.
