The boundary conditions for polytropic gas spheres
- 22 Downloads
Emden's differential equation for polytropic gas spheres, as well as Chandrasekhar's equation for associated Emden function of zero order and indexn=0(0.1)4.9 have been integrated numerically with a CDC 7600 automatic computer to 16 decimal places; and the surface values of the respective functions compared with previous work.
