The role of thermal instability in star formation

The role of thermal instability in star formation

Abstract

The observations tell us that the density in the giant molecular clouds in which stars are formed is inhomogeneous on a variety of scales, but it seems unlikely that this is due to the action of gravitational instability. This paper describes numerical calculations using an adaptive mesh refinement magnetohydrodynamics code that show that thermal instability may have an important role to play in the formation of this structure
