In science:

In the present work, if the physical density of a gas particle is above its particular adaptive H2 formation threshold ρHIth , then it is eligible to be a member of the wind.
Molecular hydrogen regulated star formation in cosmological SPH simulations
Generally, the values of ρHIth are higher for each particle than in the previous SF models, allowing for particles to reach higher densities before becoming eligible to form stars.
Molecular hydrogen regulated star formation in cosmological SPH simulations
This plot also shows that for a given metallicity, a lower h returns higher ρHIth .
Molecular hydrogen regulated star formation in cosmological SPH simulations
The accumulation of particles at Z = 10−3Z(cid:12) corresponds to those that have yet to be enriched by SF, but they have varying ρHIth due to variations in h.
