Rich young stellar clusters produce Hii regions whose expansion into the nearby molecular cloud is thought to trigger the formation of new stars. However, the importance of this mode of star formation is uncertain. This investigation seeks to quantify triggered star formation (TSF) in IC 1396A (a.k.a., the Elephant Trunk Nebula), a bright rimmed cloud (BRC) on the periphery of the nearby giant Hii region IC 1396 produced by the Trumpler 37 cluster. X-ray selection of young stars from Chandra X… Expand
IRAM and Gaia views of multi-episodic star formation in IC 1396A : the origin and dynamics of the Class 0 protostar at the edge of an HII region
(Abridged) IC1396A is a cometary globule containing the Class 0 source IC1396A-PACS-1. We use IRAM 30m and Gaia DR2 data to explore the star-formation history of IC1396A and investigate theExpand
