Centrifugally driven winds from protostellar accretion discs - I. Formulation and initial results

Nolan, Chris; Salmeron, Raquel; Federrath, Christoph; Bicknell, Geoffrey; Sutherland, Ralph


Protostellar discs play an important role in star formation, acting as the primary mass reservoir for accretion on to young stars and regulating the extent to which angular momentum and gas is released back into stellar nurseries through the launching of powerful disc winds. In this study, we explore how disc structure relates to the properties of the wind-launching region, mapping out the regions of protostellar discs where wind launching could be viable. We combine a series of 1.5D...[Show more]
