Self-organization in Turbulent Molecular Clouds: Compressional versus Solenoidal Modes


We use three-dimensional numerical simulations to study selforganization in supersonic turbulence in molecular clouds. Our numerical experiments describe decaying and driven turbulent flows with an isothermal equation of state, sonic Mach numbers from 2 to 10, and various degrees of magnetization. We focus on properties of the velocity field and… (More)
