Abstract

The resolution criterion for self-gravity in AMR codes derived by Truelove et al. (1997) based on the Jeans length is a very robust one and thus quite popular. We believe that for some configurations, such as self-gravitating discs, there are reasons to supplement it in order to properly resolve gravitational instabilities and clump formation processes at reasonable computational costs.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
