Simulating Population III star formation

Guest speaker: Dr. Lewis Prole, Cardiff University
Wednesday, May 31, 2023 - 11:00 to 12:00
PCT, Science Building, North Campus, Maynooth University



The first generation of stars had a huge impact on the early Universe through radiative feedback, reionisation, metal enrichment and magnetic field structural changes.  While it was originally believed that a single, massive Pop III star would form per cosmological halo, recent studies have revealed that primordial gas fragments to form a broad range of stellar masses.

Here we discuss the effects of resolution, magnetic fields and stellar feedback on the Pop III mass function.
