Sample text

The newly formed stars inject metals and energy via UV radiation into the ISM, determining its physical conditions. The heating and cooling of the gas is predominantly regulated in neutral regions of the 45 46 4 The Infrared ISM, generally called photodissociation regions (PDR), from which comes most of the CO emission of galaxies [112]. The heating and cooling of the gaseous phase of the ISM occurs via kinetic energy transfer from and to atoms, molecules, and ions of the interstellar gas. As extensively described in [75], the principal heating process starts with the removal of an electron from an atom or a dust grain of the ISM.

Gas can also be cooled by the collisional excitation of permitted lines as is the case of the hydrogen atom that is excited from the ground level n D 1 to n D 2, whose de-excitation produces a Lyman-α photon. This cooling process is particularly efficient at high gas temperatures (T > 8000 K). In shocks and photodissociation regions, the collisional excitation and de-excitation of various molecules (H2 , H2 O, CO) and their isotopes is important. CO rotational lines and CI (which has a fine structure line excitation temperature of 23 K) are the dominant cooling lines within molecular clouds.

2) Thus the color of a star mainly depends on its effective temperature. 3) where G is the gravitational constant. The third of parameter characterising stellar atmospheres is their chemical composition (metallicity). Stars have been classified according to their spectral type. The main sequence stars, those burning hydrogen to helium in their cores, have been coded as O, B, A, F, G, K, M and L (and have subclasses ranging from 0 to 9) according to the presence and the intensity of different absorption line features.
