Encyclopedia > SSPSF model

The SSPSF (““stochastic self-propagating star formation) model of star formation was proposed by Mueller & Arnett [1] in 1976, generalized afterward by Gerola & Seiden [2] in 1978 and Gerola, Seiden, & Schulman [3 in 1980. This model proposes that star formation propagates via the action of shock waves produced by stellar winds and supernovae that compose the interstellar medium. 1976 (MCMLXXVI) was a leap year starting on Thursday. ... 1978 (MCMLXXVIII) was a common year starting on Sunday. ... 1980 (MCMLXXX) was a leap year starting on Tuesday. ... Remnant of Keplers Supernova, SN 1604. ...
