Herbig-Haro Jets and Early Stellar Evolution

 

Herbig-Haro flows are now recognized as key phenomena in our attempts to understand the very earliest phases of the formation of solartype stars. In this talk I will review the current status of our understanding of the Herbig-Haro flows based on observations at optical, infrared, millimeter and centimeter wavelengths. The relation between Herbig-Haro jets and molecular outflows has become much clearer in recent years, as has the issue of the dimensions of HH flows. The role of binarity for the mass loss of very young stars will also be discussed. Finally, I will review current attempts to relate the outflows from young stars to what we know about active disk accretion phenomena.
