Differentially rotating gaseous polytropes: construction of a solar model with constant mass

  • V. S. Geroyannis
  • G. A. Antonakopoulos


Differentially rotating polytropic configurations are considered by assuming that their masses are constant. Structure parameters and related quantities of interest, characterizing a solar model and computed by purely numerical methods, are compared with their respective values obtained when the central densities of the configurations of the model are assumed equal.
