Abstract

We present a simple theory for the evolution of turblence in the interstellar medium which explains why the mass function for clumps in star-forming molecular clouds has a knee around 0.5 M⊙ and hence potentially why the Initial Mass Function for star formation becomes much shallower below this mass
