Upcoming Seminar/Colloqium


Star formation in young star clusters and H II regions.

Speaker : Rakesh Pandey
Affiliation : ARIES
Date & Time :
Venue : Auditorium
Abstract :

Massive stars have a profound effect on their natal environment, creating wind-blown shells, cavities and H II regions. The immense amount of energy released through the stellar winds and radiation disperses and destroys the remaining molecular gas and likely inhibits further star formation. However, it has also been argued that, in some circumstances, the energy feedback by these massive stars can promote and induce subsequent star formation in the surrounding molecular gas before it disperses. Other then feedback there are other processes which could be attributed to explain the star formation scenario. In this talk I am going to discuss these processes briefly and will present the results from two of the our projects.
