N2H+ observations of molecular cloud cores in Taurus with the Nobeyama 45 m radio telescope are reported. We compare cores with young stars to cores without young stars. The differences in core radius, line width, and core mass are small. Line width is dominated by thermal motions in both cases. N2H+ maps show that the intensity distribution does not differ much between cores without stars and those with stars. This is in contrast to the result previously obtained in H13CO+ toward Taurus… 

Chemical variation in molecular cloud cores in the Orion A cloud. II.

We have mapped six molecular cloud cores in the Orion A giant molecular cloud (GMC), whose kinetic temperatures range from 10 to 30 K, in CCS and N2H+ with the Nobeyama 45 m radio telescope to study

ALMA ACA and Nobeyama Observations of Two Orion Cores in Deuterated Molecular Lines

We mapped two molecular cloud cores in the Orion A cloud with the 7 m Array of the Atacama Compact Array (ACA) of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeterArray (ALMA) and with the Nobeyama 45 m

Molecular Cloud Cores with High Deuterium Fractions: Nobeyama Mapping Survey

We present the results of on-the-fly mapping observations of 44 fields containing 107 SCUBA-2 cores in the emission lines of molecules N2H+, HC3N, and CCS at 82–94 GHz using the Nobeyama 45 m

Chains of dense cores in the Taurus L1495/B213 complex

(Abridged) We study the kinematics of the dense gas in the Taurus L1495/B213 filamentary region to investigate the mechanism of core formation. We use observations of N2H+(1-0) and C18O(2-1) carried

Cores, filaments, and bundles: hierarchical core formation in the L1495/B213 Taurus region

Context. Core condensation is a critical step in the star-formation process, but it is still poorly characterized observationally. Aims. We have studied the 10 pc-long L1495/B213 complex in Taurus to

Molecular Evolution in Collapsing Prestellar Cores. III. Contraction of a Bonnor-Ebert Sphere

The gravitational collapse of a spherical cloud core is investigated by numerical calculations. The initial conditions of the core lie close to the critical Bonnor-Ebert sphere with a central density

A centrally concentrated sub-solar-mass starless core in the Taurus L1495 filamentary complex

The formation scenario of brown dwarfs is still unclear because observational studies to investigate its initial condition are quite limited. Our systematic survey of nearby low-mass star-forming

The Physical Properties of High-mass Star-forming Clumps: A Systematic Comparison of Molecular Tracers

We present observations of HCO+ and H13CO+, N2H+, HCS+, HNC and HN13C, SO and 34SO, CCH, SO2, and CH3OH-E toward a sample of 27 high-mass clumps coincident with water maser emission. All transitions

Sequential Star Formation in the Young SMC Region NGC 602: Insights from ALMA

NGC 602 is a young, low-metallicity star cluster in the “Wing” of the Small Magellanic Cloud. We reveal the recent evolutionary past of the cluster through analysis of high-resolution (∼0.4 pc)

Molecular cloud condensation as a tracer of low-mass star formation

STARS form inside dense clouds of molecular gas, but the details of the process, such as the quantity of gas that goes into stars and the rate at which the gas collapses, are still unknown. The

Star Formation in Magnetic Clouds

This paper reexamines the widely accepted assumption that low-mass stars form mainly in magnetically subcritical cloud cores and high-mass stars form in magnetically supercritical ones. Cloud cores,
