dc.description.abstractWe investigate the general stability of 1D spherically symmetric ionized Bondi accretion on to a massive object in the specific context of accretion on to a young stellar object. We first derive a new analytic expression for a steady-state two-temperature solution that predicts the existence of compact and hypercompact H ii regions. We then show that this solution is only marginally stable if ionization is treated self-consistently. This leads to a recurring collapse of the H ii region over time. We derive a semi-analytic model to explain this instability, and test it using spatially converged 1D radiation hydrodynamical simulations. We discuss the implications of the 1D instability on 3D radiation hydrodynamics simulations of supersonic accreting flows.
