Low-metallicity star formation: The characteristic mass and upper mass limit

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We consider the fragmentation mass scale of low-metallicity clouds based on their thermal evolution. Then we present the protostellar evolution in the main accretion phase, and discuss the upper limit on the stellar mass by the stellar feedback.
