NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF PROTOSTAR FORMATION IN MAGNETIZED MOLECULAR CLOUD CORES
Abstract:The two-dimensional numerical simulations of magnetized molecular cloud collapse has been done using integrated adaptive mesh in spherical coordinates. To take into account non-isothermality of late stages of collapse, we use a kind of "parametrical" approach to the radiative transfer through the cloud. Several numerical models are presented.
