Abstract:

We use our H-α and 21-cm observations of the dwarf Irr galaxy IC 1613 to analyze the relationship between stars and the ISM in the area of a recent burst of star formation in the galaxy. We trace several possible loci of favorable conditions for star formation triggered by collisions of shells and supershells.

Keywords: ISM; star: formation; stellar wind, supershell
