# 3D perturbations in an isothermal self-similar flow

@article{Lou20113DPI, title={3D perturbations in an isothermal self-similar flow}, author={Yu-qing Lou and Xue-ning Bai}, journal={Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society}, year={2011}, volume={415}, pages={925-943} }

We explore three-dimensional (3D) isothermal perturbation structures in a non-linear dynamic background of self-gravitating isothermal radial flow with spherical symmetry. The overall flow then appears quasi-spherically symmetric. Here, the dynamic background radial flow describes a self-similar evolution with a central/final free-fall asymptotic solution and a faraway/initial flow but without involving the sonic critical line (SCL). As transients peter out, 3D perturbations can consistently…
