Close stellar encounters in young, substructured, dissolving star clusters: Statistics and effects on planetary systems

Craig, Jonathan; Krumholz, Mark

Description

Both simulations and observations indicate that stars form in filamentary, hierarchically clustered associations, most of which disperse into their galactic field once feedback destroys their parent clouds. However, during their early evolution in these substructured environments, stars can undergo close encounters with one another that might have significant impacts on their protoplanetary disks or young planetary systems. We perform N-body simulations of the early evolution of dissolving,...[Show more]
