We summarize recent numerical results on the control of the star formation efficiency (SFE), addressing the effects of turbulence and the magnetic field strength. In closed-box numerical simulations, the effect of the turbulent Mach number Ms depends on whether the turbulence is driven or decaying: In driven regimes, increasing Ms with all other parameters… CONTINUE READING
