Abstract We show that the explosion of the first supernovae can trigger low-mass star formation via gravitational fragmentation of the supernova-driven gas shell. If the shell mass does not exceed the host galaxy gas mass, all explosions with energies ESN⩾1051 erg can lead to shell fragmentation. However, the minimum ambient density required to induce such fragmentation is much larger, n0>300 cm−3, for Type II supernovae than for pair-instability ones, which can induce star formation even at… Expand
