Non-uniformly rotating, self-gravitating, compressible masses with internal meridian circulation

  • Ian W. Roxburgh


The structure of self-gravitating, inviscid, compressible fluids is investigated assuming a polytropic relation between pressure and density. A class of solutions with non-uniform rotation and internal meridian circulation are presented and the stream lines of the flow calculated using a perturbation technique.
