[51.10] Disks and Outflows

L. F. Rodriguez (Instituto de Astronomia, UNAM)

The presence of disks and outflows characterizes the earliest stages of stellar evolution. I will review recent results that exemplify how the radio observations have become powerful tools in the study of these extremely young objects. Binarity and multiplicity seem to be factors that we are only starting to understand. Outflows are now seen as laboratories for the chemistry of shocked regions. Finally, the efforts to extend the paradigm for low-mass stellar formation to more massive protostars can be tested critically in the radio wavelengths.

I acknowledge the support from CONACyT, Mexico.
