Stellar, brown dwarf and multiple star properties from hydrodynamical simulations of star cluster formation
We report the statistical properties of stars, brown dwarfs and multiple systems obtained from the largest hydrodynamical simulation of star cluster formation to date that resolves masses down to theExpand
Resolution requirements for smoothed particle hydrodynamics calculations with self-gravity
We determine a new resolution requirement for the smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) numerical method when self-gravity is included. Comparison calculations between an SPH code and an EulerianExpand
Modelling accretion in protobinary systems
A method for following fragmentation simulations further in time using smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) is presented. In a normal SPH simulation of the collapse and fragmentation of a molecularExpand
Stellar, brown dwarf and multiple star properties from a radiation hydrodynamical simulation of star cluster formation
We report the statistical properties of stars, brown dwarfs and multiple systems obtained from the largest radiation hydrodynamical simulation of star cluster formation to date that resolves massesExpand
The formation of a star cluster: predicting the properties of stars and brown dwarfs
We present results from the largest numerical simulation of star formation to resolve the fragmentation process down to the opacity limit. The simulation follows the collapse and fragmentation of aExpand
The importance of radiative feedback for the stellar initial mass function
We investigate the effect of radiative feedback on the star formation process using radiation hydrodynamical simulations. We repeat the previous hydrodynamical star cluster formation simulations ofExpand
Competitive accretion in embedded stellar clusters
We investigate the physics of gas accretion in young stellar clusters. Accretion in clusters is a dynamic phenomenon as both the stars and the gas respond to the same gravitational potential.Expand
Circumplanetary disc properties obtained from radiation hydrodynamical simulations of gas accretion by protoplanets
We investigate the properties of circumplanetary discs formed in three-dimensional, self-gravitating radiation hydrodynamical models of gas accretion by protoplanets. We determine disc sizes,Expand
Three-dimensional calculations of high- and low-mass planets embedded in protoplanetary discs
We analyse the non-linear, three-dimensional response of a gaseous, viscous protoplanetary disc to the presence of a planet of mass ranging from 1 Earth mass (1 M⊕) to 1 Jupiter mass (1 MJ) by usingExpand
The hierarchical formation of a stellar cluster
Recent surveys of star-forming regions have shown that most stars, and probably all massive stars, are born in dense stellar clusters. The mechanism by which a molecular cloud fragments to formExpand
