Wednesday 26 Jan 2022 Planet formation in stellar clusters

Thomas Howarth -

4th Floor physics + remote 14:00-15:00

Star forming regions are hostile environments, with high stellar number densities and strong radiation fields. In addition to feedback from massive stars affecting the evolution of the star forming region itself, it can also affect the evolution of circumstellar discs, which could have implications for planet formation. In this talk I will review recent evidence for the environment influencing disc evolution and discuss some unsolved problems and future prospects.
