Abstract:Methanol masers observed at high angular resolution are useful tool to investigate the processes of high-mass star formation. Here, we present the results of statistical analysis of the 6.7 GHz methanol maser structures in 60 sources observed with the EVN. The parameters of the maser clouds and exciting stars were derived. There is evidence that the emission structures composed of larger number of maser clouds are formed in the vicinity of more luminous exciting stars.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
