As an extension of our previous work, we investigate the dynamical instability against nonaxisymmetric bar-mode deformations of differentially rotating stars in Newtonian gravity by varying the equations of state and velocity profiles. We performed the numerical simulation and the follow-up linear stability analysis by adopting polytropic equations of state with polytropic indices n = 1, 3/2 and 5/2, and with two types of angular velocity profiles (the so-called j-constant-like and Kepler-like…

AMR simulations of the low T/W bar-mode instability of neutron stars
The overall trends reported in an earlier investigation are confirmed and it is found that numerical resolution plays an important role during the long-term, nonlinear behavior of the instability, which has implications on the dynamics of rotating stars and on the attainable amplitudes of the associated gravitational wave signals.

R-mode oscillations of differentially and rapidly rotating Newtonian polytropic stars
For analysis of the r-mode oscillation of hot young neutron stars, it is necessary to consider the effect of differential rotation, because viscosity is not strong enough for differentially rotating

3D numerical simulations of the dynamical instability in rapidly rotating stars initially modeled as polytropes, finding that this instability may operate in a stellar core that has expended its nuclear fuel and is prevented from further collapse due to centrifugal forces.
