Sequential Formation of Massive Stars at the Periphery of H II Regions

Abstract

The ``collect and collapse'' model predicts that massive objects−stars or clusters−should form in the shocked neutral layer surrounding an expanding H II region when this layer becomes gravitationally unstable and fragments. We present several cases of H II regions and their associated clusters that seem to be good illustrations of this process of triggered star formation.
