Supernova Remnant Impact on Star Formation

Although gravitation is considered to be the driving mechanism for the formation of stars out of the densest cores in molecular clouds, observations have shown that gravitation alone is often not sufficient, but additional compression by shocks like in SNRs seems to be necessary. In a systematic search using archival data and dedicated follow-up observations, we have found candidates for young stellar objects (YSOs) inside Galactic SNRs. Using these objects we study of the impact of SNR shocks on YSOs and their discs and envelopes.
