(Proto)stellar Feedback in Massive Star Formation
Presented by Rolf Kuiper and Dylan Kee
University of Tüebingen, Germany

Thursday, July 12, 2018
11:00 A.M. in 169-336

The process of forming the most massive stars is a competition between rapid accretion and the growing feedback of the newly born central star. Understanding and quantifying this interplay requires studying a variety of physical processes, including gravity, radiation pressure, photoionization, and outflow launching. Such studies also require considering length scales ranging from parsecs down to a few AU, or even the surface of the (proto)star. In this talk, we will discuss the latest efforts to simulate this broad range of processes and scales by the Emmy Noether research group on "Accretion Flows and Feedback in Realistic Models of Massive Star Formation" at the University of Tübingen.
