Seminar:- Magnetic Fields and the Early Stages of Star Formation
Star formation is one of the fundamental astrophysical processes, so it is important to fully understand the physics and phenomena of this process. The role and importance of magnetic fields in star formation has been uncertain ever since their initial detection in the interstellar medium almost 70 years ago. The speaker will discuss techniques for measuring interstellar magnetic fields in star-forming molecular clouds, briefly describe some of the principal theories for the formation and evolution of molecular clouds, and discuss the current status and future possibilities of observational testing of the theoretical predictions of star formation theories.
