Modeling Jet and Outflow Feedback During Star Cluster Formation

Federrath, Christoph; Schron, Martin; Banerjee, Robi; Klessen, Ralf Stephan


Powerful jets and outflows are launched from the protostellar disks around newborn stars. These outflows carry enough mass and momentum to transform the structure of their parent molecular cloud and to potentially control star formation itself. Despite their importance, we have not been able to fully quantify the impact of jets and outflows during the formation of a star cluster. The main problem lies in limited computing power. We would have to resolve the magnetic jet-launching mechanism...[Show more]
