Abstract: We present 3-D magnetohydrodynamical (MHD) collapse simulations of magnetized, rotating prestellar cores. We examine the influence of the magnetic field strength and the rotational energy on protostellar accretion rates and on the formation of outflows and protostellar disks. We find a strong dependency of the outflow morphology and the disk properties on the magnetic field strength. Interestingly, the accretion rates depend only weakly on the initial conditions.
