Extreme Star Formation

Conference paper
Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Proceedings book series (ASSSP)


Extreme star formation includes star formation in starbursts and regions forming super star clusters.We survey the current problems in our understanding of the star formation process in starbursts and super star clusters—initial mass functions, cluster mass functions, star formation efficiencies, and radiative feedback into molecular clouds—that are critical to our understanding of the formation and survival of large star clusters, topics that will be the drivers of the observations of the next decade.
