The nature of star formation in the Trapezium Cluster

Samuel, Angela E

Description

The Trapezium Cluster stellar population is studied in detail using near-infrared and optical means in order to probe the clustered mode of low and high mass star formation. We determine fundamental stellar parameters such as the spectral types, ages, masses, extinctions and dust excesses for a significant number of cluster stars. Various techniques are applied to deredden the stars in the color-magnitude diagram and hence compare intrinsic positions with theoretical evolutionary tracks....[Show more]
