Triggered Star Formation
It is now well established that massive stars in star forming regions can trigger next generation of star formation. Theoretical simulations suggest two main processes for triggered star formation; the radiation driven implosion (RDI) process and collect & collapse (CC) process. In this talk I will discuss observational aspects of triggered star formation scenario. The young stellar objects (YSOs) in star forming regions have been identified using the near-infrared (NIR) and mid-infrared (MIR) observations. The age of the identified YSOs was estimated using the optical color-magnitude diagram. The age of YSOs, the morphology of the regions and the global distribution of YSOs indicate that the star formation can be triggered by either (RDI/ CC) of the processes. I will also discuss briefly about our 3.6 – m Devasthal telescope.
