Two-component Jets - COMParing Theory, Observations and Numerical simulations
ID: 249164
Start date: 2009-10-15, End date: 2012-10-14
Young stellar object jets are supersonic and highly collimated plasma outflows that propagate for large distances. Although their association to star formation is a well established fact, there are still open questions such as whether the outflow is of a disk or stellar origi...
