SILCC-Zoom: The early impact of ionizing radiation on forming molecular clouds

We present molecular cloud simulations including radiative stellar feedback. We discuss the reduction of the star formation efficiency and the dispersal of molecular clouds due to stellar feedback.

SILCC-Zoom: Polarization and depolarization in molecular clouds

We present dust polarisation radiative transfer simulations obtained with POLARIS of simulations of magnetised molecular clouds. We discuss the accuracy of actual polarisation observations and the origin of depolarisation in molecular clouds.

On the resolution requirements for modelling molecular gas formation in solar neighbourhood conditions

We present numerical simulations of molecular clouds formation including the chemical evolution of H2 and CO. We discuss the spatial resolution required to obtain numerically converged chemical abundances.
