Furthermore, if Hi - Hi cloud collisions produced the H2 , the molecular gas would be as extended as the Hi in the bridge – this is not the case.

We carried out this test for Σgas = 100 g/cm2 at R = 1AU with ρd = 3.6, and we find that the model produces a sharp peak distribution near a = 0.35mm, which is virtually identical to the analytic result (a = 0.3472mm).

This threshold regulates the star formation regime producing an oscillatory behaviour for the SFR when the gas density is close to its value (see Figure 1).

In absence of diffusion, CH+ is produced via the reaction C+ + H → CH+ and destroyed by photodissociation in the hot gas or by CH+ + H → C+ + H2 in the cold gas.

For example choosing Ω = ω⊥/3, ωz ≃ ω⊥ and N = 106 , one predicts Nv ∼ 130 at unitarity which is significantly larger than the number of vortices that one can produce in a dilute Bose gas with the same angular velocity.
