We perform a sequence of 3D magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations of the outflow–core interaction for a massive protostar forming via collapse of an initial cloud core of 60 M⊙. This allows us to characterize the properties of disk-wind-driven outflows from massive protostars, which can allow testing of different massive star formation theories. It also enables us to assess quantitatively the impact of outflow feedback on protostellar core morphology and overall star formation efficiency (SFE… 
Continuity of accretion from clumps to Class 0 high-mass protostars in SDC335
Context. The infrared dark cloud (IRDC) SDC335.579-0.292 (hereafter, SDC335) is a massive (~5000 M⊙) star-forming cloud which has been found to be globally collapsing towards one of the most massive
The Role of Outflows, Radiation Pressure, and Magnetic Fields in Massive Star Formation
Stellar feedback in the form of radiation pressure and magnetically driven collimated outflows may limit the maximum mass that a star can achieve and affect the star formation efficiency of massive
Measuring the ionisation fraction in a jet from a massive protostar
TLDR
The ionisation fraction of protostellar jets is determined in a jet from a high-mass young stellar object, using multi-wavelengths observations, confirming that the ionising mechanism giving rise to the radio emission originates from shocks.
Discovery of a Photoionized Bipolar Outflow toward the Massive Protostar G45.47+0.05
Massive protostars generate strong radiation feedback, which may help set the mass that they achieve by the end of the accretion process. Studying such feedback is therefore crucial for understanding
The SOFIA Massive (SOMA) Star Formation Survey. III. From Intermediate- to High-mass Protostars
We present SOFIA–FORCAST images of 14 intermediate-mass protostar candidates as part of the SOFIA Massive (SOMA) Star Formation Survey. We build spectral energy distributions, also using archival
Multi-scale view of star formation in IRAS 21078+5211: from clump fragmentation to disk wind
Context. Star formation (SF) is a multi-scale process in which the mode of fragmentation of the collapsing clump on scales of 0.1–1 pc determines the mass reservoir and affects the accretion process
The SOMA Radio Survey. I. Comprehensive SEDs of High-mass Protostars from Infrared to Radio and the Emergence of Ionization Feedback
We study centimeter continuum emission of eight high- and intermediate-mass protostars that are part of the SOFIA Massive Star Formation Survey, thus building extended spectral energy distributions

Impact of protostellar outflow on star formation: effects of the initial cloud mass
The effects of a protostellar outflow on the star formation in a single cloud core are investigated by three-dimensional resistive magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations. Starting from the pre-stellar
THE IMPACT OF FEEDBACK DURING MASSIVE STAR FORMATION BY CORE ACCRETION
We study feedback during massive star formation using semi-analytic methods, considering the effects of disk winds, radiation pressure, photoevaporation, and stellar winds, while following
SIMULATING THE FORMATION OF MASSIVE PROTOSTARS. I. RADIATIVE FEEDBACK AND ACCRETION DISKS
We present radiation hydrodynamic simulations of collapsing protostellar cores with initial masses of 30, 100, and 200 M⊙. We follow their gravitational collapse and the formation of a massive
Efficiencies of Low-Mass Star and Star Cluster Formation
Using a quantitative model for bipolar outflows driven by hydromagnetic protostellar winds, we calculate the efficiency of star formation assuming that available gas is either converted into stars or

We carry out radiation hydrodynamical simulations of the formation of massive stars in the super-Eddington regime including both their radiative feedback and protostellar outflows. The calculations
Jets and outflows of massive protostars
Context. Massive stars live short but intense lives. While less numerous than low-mass stars, they enormously impact their surroundings by several feedback mechanisms. They form in opaque and
