Birth Sequence

• cloud fragments and collapses [Jeans mass and radius]
• free-fall [~4000 yr]
Jean’s instability:
Ugas = -1/2 Ω
(internal energy vs g potential E
Minimum mass for collapse (Jean’s Mass)
MJ ~ (5kT/GmH)3/2 (3/4o)1/2
or MJ ~ 3kTR/GmH
Minimum radius:
RJ ~ (15kT/4GmH o)1/2
or RJ ~ GmHM/3kT
Cloud fragments & collapses if M>MJ, R>RJ
Free-fall time = (3/32Go)1/2
for T~150K, n~108/cm3, ~2x10-16 g/cm3
tff ~ 4700 yr
Dense, cold regions can support only small masses (so collapse),
while warm, diffuse regions can support larger masses (stable)
Star Formation
The dark region has
just developed a
Jeans instability.
The central gases are
heating as they fall into the
newly forming protostar.
Matthew Bate simulation of collapse and
fragmentation of 500 solar mass cloud to
produce a cluster of 183 stars and bds including
40 multiple systems
QuickTime™ and a
H.264 decompressor
are needed to see this picture.
Unfortunately, no good quantitative theory to predict star
formation rate or stellar mass distribution !
IMF = Initial Mass Function
 (log m) = dN/d log m  m-
N is number of stars in logarithmic mass
range log m + d log m
= 1.35 Salpeter slope (logarithmic)
in linear units (m)= dN/dm  m- 
where  =  + 1 (= 2.35 Salpeter)
Big question: Is it universal?
Birth Sequence
• trigger [SN, cloud-cloud, density wave]
• cloud fragments and collapses [Jeans mass and radius]
• early collapse isothermal - E radiated away
• interior becomes adiabatic[no heat transfer] - E trapped so T rises
• protostellar core forms [~ 5 AU] with free-falling gas above
• dust vaporizes as T increases
• convective period
• radiative period
• nuclear fusion begins [starts zero-age main sequence]

degeneracy
Pauli exclusion principle: no 2 electrons can be in the same
state (position & momentum)
as T increases, more states available P  T
at high density, collisions restricted P  
if all states full, gas is degenerate
as star contracts,  increases so becomes degenerate
as T increases, degeneracy is lifted
when He - C fusion starts, core is degenerate
He flash removes degeneracy
WDs are totally degenerate
up to 1. 4 M degeneracy pressure stops the collapse

Pulsating stars:
Asteroseismology
• Pulsations 
Only systematic
way to study
the stellar
interior
• Pulsations are
observed in stars
all over the HR
diagram
ZZ Ceti stars
Pulsations in a star
Pulsation period and amplitude depend on
the average density. P  1/2
Low density
long P, high amplitude
High density
short P, low amplitude
Density profile decides how deep the pulsations penetrate in the star.
(Deeper the penetration
more we learn about the interior)
Centrally condensed stars like our Sun have shallow pulsations
Uniform density stars like white dwarfs have deep pulsations
Cepheids and RR Lyrae
RR Lyrae: A giants, Mv = 0.5, P<1 day
Cepheids: F-G SG, P-L relation, HeII
ionization zone pulsation mechanism
P-L relation
1) measure mv with CCD
2) find P from light curve
3) use P-L to get Mv
4) m-M

•
White dwarfs show non-radial g-modes on account of their high gravity
Periods of 100s to 1000s
•
These modes are characterized by quantum numbers (k,l,m)
similar to atomic orbitals
Spherical gravitational potential  Spherical electrostatic potential
l determines the number of borders between hot and cool zones on the surface
m is the number of borders that pass through the pole of the rotation axis
k determines the number of times the pulsation wiggles from the center to the surface
