ARREAGA GARCIA, Guillermo. Formation of Protostellar Clusters’ Computational Model: an application to ‘the Brick’. Epistemus (Sonora) [online]. 2022, vol.16, n.33, pp.39-45.  Epub May 19, 2023. ISSN 2007-8196.

In the present work, we show results of a numerical simulation project aimed to study the formation process of the interstellar cloud known as “the Brick”. This cloud is located near the Milky Way center. The simulated formation process is based on the collision of two gas sub-clouds that are contained within a larger progenitor cloud. A fundamental characteristic is that the simulated gas shows turbulent velocities. The results of several simulations that well represent some cases of academic interest are studied besides the case of the cloud “the Brick”. In addition, we calculate the physical properties of the groups of proto- star resulting from such models. Due to the obtained mass, these groups can be identified as protostellar clusters.
