Initial radial profiles of the gas surface density Σg (right) and Toomre Q-parameters (left) in models with different rotational support against gravity as indicated by the α-parameter. The horizontal dotted lines define the critical values of Q-parameter below which star formation is supposed to occur (see the text for more details).
