Abstract

The Taurus star forming region has an unusual core mass function (CMF) and an unusual initial mass function (IMF).We show that the unusual IMF of Taurus may well be a direct result of all of the stars only forming in cores of a few M⊙. This produces a two-component IMF consisting of ∼ 1M⊙ stars that remain in cores, and low-mass stars and brown dwarfs that are ejected from cores.
