The stellar IMF and the earliest phase of the assembly of the Milky Way
If you have a question about this talk, please contact mmg35.
The shape of the canonical IMF is briefly reviewed. Using the present day stellar populations in globular clusters as a constraint on their birth configurations these may be compared to observational data on star forming regions. Correlations appear, e.g. between the radius and the shape of the IMF versus the mass of the embedded cluster. Rather remarkable information is unearthed on the very earliest events that shaped the birth of the Milky Way galaxy.
