Formation of the low-mass solar nebulaWe study an accretional stage of the formation and early evolution of the solar nebula with relatively small angular momentum. We investigate the evolution of the disk and its vertical structure, particularly the shock front between disk and infalling material. Calculations start at a moment when a low-mass star-like core surrounded by small embryo disk have been formed at the center of the presolar nebula and the bulk of mass remained in the envelope. The forming solar nebula is approximated as a thin viscous disk surrounded by accreting envelope. The distribution of temperature in the infalling envelope is determined by solving spherically symmetric equations of radiative transfer. As the energy source, we take into account all energy released within the centrifugal radius of the infalling matter. Other aspects of this study are discussed.
