Abstract
A dynamical model has been developed to envisage the star formation scenario in filamentary molecular clouds. In the present work a double well potential has been considered to find the number of stable stationary points as the origin of field star, binary stars or stellar associations. It is found that low density structure can lead to the formation of field stars while an intermediate density structure is favourable for formation of binary stars. Stellar associations are generally prevalent in dense filamentary molecular clouds. © 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Nature B.V. part of Springer Nature.
