Chadwick Lecture Theatre, Liverpool University L69 3DR

Speakers: Dr Rene Oudmaijer

During the last century astronomers have arrived at a well-versed theory of the formation of stars. In this talk Dr Oudmaijer will summarise the main ideas behind this theory and discuss the most recent developments in the field. In parallel, the lecturer will show that star formation is not a gentle and slow process as one might expect. On the contrary, the birth of stars is often associated with violent and energetic phenomena. Dr Oudmaijer will present examples of the turbulent and shocking star-forming process, and discuss the challenges that they pose for our current understanding
