The Atomic to Molecular (HI-to-H2) Transition in Galaxy Star-Forming Regions
Speaker: Amiel Sternberg (Tev Aviv University, Flatiron Institute, Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics)
The atomic to molecular hydrogen (HI-to-H2) phase transition is of fundamental importance for star-formation and the emergence of chemical complexity in the interstellar medium of galaxies. I will present an overview, and discuss recent theoretical studies, numerical and analytic, of the HI-to-H2 transition in irradiated systems, with applications to the multi-scale behavior observed in star-forming galaxy disks from low- to high-redshift.
