Computer simulations of the birth of stars

Simulating the birth of a star is one of the most challenging problems in computational astrophysics.
As a star is formed, the density of gas during the collapse of a gas cloud changes by roughly 20 orders of magnitude, posing a significant challenge, even for modern supercomputers.
We carry out simulations of the formation of both individual stars and multiple star systems, as well as simulations of large volumes of the interstellar gas from which the stars are formed.
