  • We present an investigation of the massive star formation that results from the gravitational collapse of massive, magnetized molecular cloud cores. We investigate this by means of highly resolved, numerical simulations of initial magnetized Bonnor-Ebert-spheres that undergo collapse and cooling. By comparing three different cases—an isothermal collapse, a collapse with radiative cooling, and a magnetized collapse—we show that massive stars assemble quickly, with mass accretion rates exceeding… CONTINUE READING
