Fragmentation and massive disk formation

Henrik Beuther
MPIA, Heidelberg, DE
How do high-mass gas clumps fragment? And how do the most massive disk-like structures form during this process? I will present results from a new large program at NOEMA (formerly Plateau de Bure Interferometer) resolving a large sample of high-mass star-forming regions at mm wavelength around 0.3" resolution. This program resolves the central cores and reveal the gas dynamics. These data will be complemented with recent even higher resolution (< 0.1") data from ALMA and the VLA toward two specific case studies.
