The Eulerian equations of differentially rotating gaseous polytropes

  • V. S. Geroyannis
  • J. N. Tokis


In this paper, we present in detail the whole process by which the Eulerian general equation is obtained, holding in case of a differentially rotating gaseous polytrope. The explicit form of this equation is derived on the basis of a model developed in a previous investigation.
