Cold Dark Clouds: The Initial Conditions for Star Formation
Thus as the core physically evolves, the effects of freeze-out on gaseous species are magnified, and can be used to constrain the mechanism of core formation. 4.3.3 Chemical/Dynamical Models Combined chemical and dynamical models follow the chemical composition as the core contracts.
Cold Dark Clouds: The Initial Conditions for Star Formation
The proof goes as follows: We pick out the sublinear combination in our hypothesis (or in (2.108)) where the factors ∇ψh , ∇ψh′ (or ∇ψh , ∇χ2 ) are contracting against the same factor.

Then, we observe that if we pick out the sublinear combinations in those equations that consist of complete contractions with σ + u factors (denote those sublinear combinations by Zg ), then lin{Zg } = 0 formally. (Recall that lin{Zg} stands for the linearization of the linear combination Zg –see ).
