    Jones, MO; Bate, M (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2018-05-15)
    We investigate the dependence of stellar properties on the initial mean density of the molecular cloud in which stellar clusters form using radiation hydrodynamical simulations that resolve the opacity limit for fragmentation. ...
  • Sink particle radiative feedback in smoothed particle hydrodynamics models of star formation 

    Jones, MO; Bate, MR (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2018-07-23)
    We present a new method for including radiative feedback from sink particles in smoothed particle hydrodynamics simulations of low-mass star formation, and investigate its effects on the formation of small stellar groups. ...
