We have studied numerically the evolution of protostellar disks around intermediate and upper mass T Tauri stars (0.25 M⊙ < M∗ < 3.0 M⊙) that have formed self-consistently from the collapse of molecular cloud cores. In the T Tauri phase, disks settle into a self-regulated state, with low-amplitude nonaxisymmetric density perturbations persisting for at… CONTINUE READING
