We investigate the formation of binary stellar systems. We consider a model where a ‘seed’ protobinary system forms, via fragmentation, within a collapsing molecular cloud core and evolves to its final mass by accreting material from an infalling gaseous envelope. This accretion alters the mass ratio and orbit of the binary, and is largely responsible for forming the circumstellar and/or circumbinary discs. Given this model for binary formation, we predict the properties of binary… CONTINUE READING
