In science:

Blitz, L., Fukui, Y., Kawamura, A., Leroy, A., Mizuno, N., & Rosolowsky, E. 2007, in Prostars and Planets V, ed. B.
Evolution of interstellar dust and stardust in the solar neighbourhood
Blitz 1997, and references therein), the latest results confirm star formation always taking place in CO-bright mole cular clouds, even at very large galactocentric distances (Kobayashi et al. 2008).
Molecular gas, CO, and star formation in galaxies: emergent empirical relations, feedback, and the evolution of very gas-rich systems
The role of pressure in particular has been highlighted over a wide range of galaxy properties (Blitz and Rosolowsky 2004), and quantified in an empirical H 2 -pressure relation derived by Blitz and Rosolowsky (2006).
Molecular gas, CO, and star formation in galaxies: emergent empirical relations, feedback, and the evolution of very gas-rich systems
In Figure 1 we show the resulting Rm -Pe relation and compare it to the observed one (Blitz & Rosolowsky 2006).
Molecular gas, CO, and star formation in galaxies: emergent empirical relations, feedback, and the evolution of very gas-rich systems
This tendency of the K-S relation towards more linear slopes as one progresses from HI to CO-bright and then HCN-bright H2 (n & 105 cm-3 ) gas has also been noted observationally (Wong and Blitz 2002; Gao and Solomon 2004).
Molecular gas, CO, and star formation in galaxies: emergent empirical relations, feedback, and the evolution of very gas-rich systems
The velocity dispersion σ and the stellar scale height h⋆ are taken to be constants (as in Blitz and Rosolowsky 2006), while the gas surface density and stellar surface density are derived from the projected gas and stellar distributions.
Molecular gas, CO, and star formation in galaxies: emergent empirical relations, feedback, and the evolution of very gas-rich systems
For solar metallicity the trend with pressure is very flat while a t lower metallicity it is steeper, but still short of a n = 0.92 slope derived by Blitz and Rosolowsky (2006).
Molecular gas, CO, and star formation in galaxies: emergent empirical relations, feedback, and the evolution of very gas-rich systems
Our results indicate that, like the K-S relation for the CO-rich H2 phase, the CO-rich H2 -pressure relation should show a strong dependence on metallicity, and for Z = Z ⊙/5 it is considerably steeper than the Blitz and Rosolowsky (2006) relation.
Molecular gas, CO, and star formation in galaxies: emergent empirical relations, feedback, and the evolution of very gas-rich systems
Although hampered by the very small number of actual CO detections at low metallicities, the available data suggest no strong trends with metallicity (Blitz and Rosolowsky 2006).
Molecular gas, CO, and star formation in galaxies: emergent empirical relations, feedback, and the evolution of very gas-rich systems
For example, the IC 10 data points shown by Blitz and Rosolowsky (2006) lie very close to the normal relation.

Blitz++ is a C++ class library for scientific computing providing high performance by using template techniques.
A study of the existing linear algebra libraries that you can use from C++ (Une \'etude des biblioth\`eques d'alg\`ebre lin\'eaire utilisables en C++)
Studies of molecular cloud properties in other galaxies have been recently reviewed (Fukui & Kawamura 2010; Blitz et al. 2007).
Star Formation in the Milky Way and Nearby Galaxies
Blitz & Rosolowsky (2006) have discovered another strong scaling relation between the ratio of molecular to atomic hydrogen in disks and the local hydrostatic pressure.
Star Formation in the Milky Way and Nearby Galaxies
Technically speaking this scaling relation only applies to the phase balance of cold gas rather than the SFR, but it can be recast into a predicted star formation law if assumptions are made about the scaling between the SFR and the molecular gas components (e.g., Blitz & Rosolowsky 2006; Leroy et al. 2008).
Star Formation in the Milky Way and Nearby Galaxies
At distances of somewhere between 20 and at most 200 kpc, the Hα-faint HVCs are not Local Group ob jects as defined by the Blitz et al. (1999) model.
