Star Formation Under Cosmological Conditions
Published online: 14 January 2020
The first stars have transformed the universe from the infrared background to the light. Thereby, this so called “dark age” ended by re-ionization through the ultraviolet light of the first stars. A short overview is given about the cosmological connection of the formation of the first stars in the universe. The physical background underlaying the process of their formation is outlined and their basic properties are described. Preliminary results of computational simulations are presented.
