We study the formation of primordial proto-stars in a ΛCDM universe using high-resolution cosmological simulations. Our approach includes all the relevant atomic and molecular physics necessary to follow the thermal evolution of a prestellar gas cloud to very high densities. We describe the numerical implementation of the physics. We show the results of a simulation of the formation of primordial stars in a reionized gas.
