Molecular evolution in star-forming cores: From prestellar cores to protostellar cores

Abstract

We investigate the molecular abundances in protostellar cores by solving the gasgrain chemical reaction network. As a physical model of the core, we adopt a result of onedimensional radiation-hydrodynamics calculation, which follows the contraction of an initially hydrostatic prestellar core to form a protostellar core. Temporal variation of molecular… (More)
