Radio observations of low-mass star formation in molecular spectral lines have rapidly progressed since the advent of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA). The gas distribution and its kinematics within a few hundreds of astronomical unit scale around a Class 0–I protostar are spatially resolved, and the region where a protostellar disk is being formed is now revealed in detail. In such studies, it is essential to characterize the complex physical structure around a protostar… 



Angular momentum profiles of Class 0 protostellar envelopes

Context. Understanding the initial properties of star forming material and how they affect the star formation process is a key question. The infalling gas must redistribute most of its initial

Molecular outflow launched beyond the disk edge

One of the long-standing problems of star formation is the excess of angular momentum of the parent molecular cloud. In the classical picture, a fraction of angular momentum of the circumstellar

Unveiling a Few Astronomical Unit Scale Rotation Structure around the Protostar in B335

We report a kinematic structure in the innermost envelope of the low-mass Class 0 protostar IRAS 19347+0727 in the Bok globule B335 observed at the best angular resolution ever achieved for this

A Keplerian disk around a Class 0 source: ALMA observations of VLA1623A

Context. Rotationally supported disks are critical in the star formation process. The questions of when they form and what factors influence or hinder their formation have been studied but are

Constraining the Infalling Envelope Models of Embedded Protostars: BHR 71 and Its Hot Corino

The collapse of a protostellar envelope results in the growth of a protostar and the development of a protoplanetary disk, playing a critical role during the early stages of star formation.

Change in the chemical composition of infalling gas forming a disk around a protostar

It is reported that the unsaturated hydrocarbon molecule cyclic-C3H2 resides in the infalling rotating envelope, whereas sulphur monoxide is enhanced in the transition zone at the radius of the centrifugal barrier (100 ± 20 au), which is the radius at which the kinetic energy of the inf falling gas is converted to rotational energy.

Structured velocity field in the inner envelope of B335: ALMA observations of rare CO isotopologues

Studying Class 0 objects is very important, as it allows to characterize dynamical processes at the onset of the star formation process, and to determine the physical mechanisms responsible for the

ALMA Observations of the Protostar L1527 IRS: Probing Details of the Disk and the Envelope Structures

We have recently observed the Class 0/I protostar L1527 IRS using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) during its Cycle 1 in 220 GHz dust continuum and C18O ( J = 2 − 1 ) line

The Evolution of the Angular Momentum Distribution during Star Formation

The angular momentum transfer in the contraction of a rotating magnetized cloud is studied with axisymmetric MHD simulations and the structure of the cloud in the range from 10 AU to 0.1 pc is explored.

Decoupling of magnetic fields in collapsing protostellar envelopes and disc formation and fragmentation

Efficient magnetic braking is a formidable obstacle to the formation of rotationally supported disks (RSDs) around protostars in magnetized dense cores. We have previously shown, through 2D
