The formation of binary stars

Abstract:
Of the several processes that have been suggested for the formation of binary systems - fragmentation, fission, capture, and collision-induced processes - fragmentation during the collapse of a rotating proto-star appears to be a key ingredient. Numerical simulations of this process do indicate that under certain conditions fragmentation does occur; however the simulations so far have not reached the point where they can explain the statistical properties of observed binary and multiple star systems.
