Evolution of neutron star oscillations : Results for polytropic and realistic equations of state

Abstract

We present the derivation of the perturbation equations governing the oscillations of relativistic nonrotating neutron star models using the (3+1)-decomposition. We show that the perturbation equations can always be written in terms of spacetime variables only, regardless of any particular gauge. We demonstrate how to obtain the Regge-Wheeler gauge, by… (More)
