We perform a series of three-dimensional, magnetohydrodynamical simulations of star cluster formation including gravity, turbulence, magnetic fields, stellar radiative heating, and outflow feedback. We observe that the inclusion of protostellar outflows (1) reduces the star formation rate by a factor of ∼2, (2) increases fragmentation, and (3) shifts the initial mass function (IMF) to lower masses by a factor of 2.0 ± 0.2, without significantly affecting the overall shape of the IMF. The form…

Forming stars emit a substantial amount of radiation into their natal environment. We use ORION, an adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) three-dimensional gravito-radiation-hydrodyanics code, to simulate

The Role of Magnetic Fields in Setting the Star Formation Rate and the Initial Mass Function
Star-forming gas clouds are strongly magnetized, and their ionization fractions are high enough to place them close to the regime of ideal magnetohydrodyamics on all but the smallest size scales. In

Protostellar feedback, both radiation and bipolar outflows, dramatically affects the fragmentation and mass accretion from star-forming cores. We use ORION, an adaptive mesh refinement

LOWERING THE CHARACTERISTIC MASS OF CLUSTER STARS BY MAGNETIC FIELDS AND OUTFLOW FEEDBACK
Magnetic fields are generally expected to increase the characteristic mass of stars formed in stellar clusters, because they tend to increase the effective Jeans mass. We test this expectation using
