Why the Mickelsson-Faddeev algebra lacks unitary representations
As illustrated by De Pree, Goss, & Gaume (1998), their eqs. (4) and (7) give the final HII region radius (Rfinal HII ) as a function of the stellar Lyman continuum photons, Te , and the density and temperature of the molecular gas.
Relative Evolutionary Time Scale of Hot Molecular Cores with Respect to Ultra Compact HII Regions
In fact, the expansion timescales obtained from eq. (3) of De Pree, Goss, & Gaume (1998) span a small range (120–480 yr), suggesting that the UC HII regions are close to pressure equilibrium.

Alvarez-Gaum´e and Witten and useful comments by Bardeen and others, we were able to explain how this works.
