The aim is to investigate whether turbulent support plays a major role in stabilizing the cores against a rapid fragmentation into Jeans-mass objects. Alternatively the observed kinematics could indicate a high level of dynamics suggesting that the cores are actually not in equilibrium and dynamical processes could be the main driver to build up the final stellar masses. Description: Here we present IRAM Plateau de Bure interferometric spectra cubes of the H13CO+ (J=1-0) and H13CN (J=1-0) lines for the sample of five cores. (All the maps are corrected for the primary beam attenuation.) PdBI+30m H13CO+ J=(1-0) and PdBI H13CN (J=1-0) line emission. The data cubes are 256x256x460 voxels, at a scale 0.62arcsec/pix and 0.135km/s/pix; the velocity range is (-14.6/47.3km/s) Objects: ------------------------------------------------------------ RA (2000) DE Designation(s) ------------------------------------------------------------ 20 35 34.1 +42 20 05.0 CygX-N3 = [MBS2007c] CygX-N3 20 36 57.4 +42 11 27.5 CygX-N12 = [MBS2007c] CygX-N12 20 39 01.5 +42 22 04.0 CygX-N48 = [MBS2007c] CygX-N48 20 39 03.1 +42 25 50.0 CygX-N53 = [MBS2007c] CygX-N53 20 40 05.2 +41 32 11.9 CygX-N63 = [MBS2007c] CygX-N63 ------------------------------------------------------------ File Summary:
