Abstract : The report sets out the work done in three categories on star formation: (1) the numerical methods developed for following the evolution of collapsing gas clouds, (2) the development of initial data permitting the study of gas clouds with a wide range of initial density distributions, (3) the preliminary results obtained while developing (1) above. It is proposed to develop these studies further and to produce a catalogue of interstellar spectral features. (Author)
