Comparison between simulations and theory: where we stand

Abstract

In this paper I relate progress in the simulation of star formation to a remarkable early (1962) paper by Fowler and Hoyle who analyzed star formation in terms of the relevant energies starting from the formation of a large (100 pc) cloud and ending with the final mass distribution of the stars. The way in which modern simulations have clarified and corrected the Fowler-Hoyle picture, and areas where we could improve our simulations, are discussed
