General polytropic dynamic cylinder under self-gravity
We explore self-similar hydrodynamics of general polytropic (GP) and isothermal cylinders of infinite length with axial uniformity and axisymmetry under self-gravity. Specific entropy conservation
A critical overview of stationary solar models based on polytropic gases
We critically analyze the models of a main-sequence star based on polytropic gases. First, we put in evidence that the hypothesis of polytropic gas is compatible with the constitutive equation of a...

We consider the Jeans instability and the gravitational collapse of the rotating Bose–Einstein condensate dark matter halos, described by the zero temperature non-relativistic Gross–Pitaevskii
An analytical solution of stationary hydrodynamic equations of a main-sequence star
We propose an analytic [Formula: see text] solution of the hydrodynamic equations for a main-sequence star in stationary and spherically symmetric conditions. We reach this result starting from
Lane-Emden equation with inertial force and general polytropic dynamic model for molecular cloud cores
We study self-similar hydrodynamics of spherical symmetry using a general polytropic ( GP) equation of state and derive the GP dynamic Lane-Emden equation ( LEE) with a radial inertial force. In
We present the exact solutions for the collapse of a spherically symmetric cold (i.e., pressureless) cloud under its own self-gravity, valid for arbitrary initial density profiles and not restricted
Variable protostellar mass accretion rates in cloud cores
Spherical hydrodynamic models with a polytropic equation of state (EoS) for forming protostars are revisited in order to investigate the so-called luminosity conundrum highlighted by observations.
General polytropic self-gravitating cylinder free-fall and accreting mass string with a chain of collapsed objects
We present a theoretical model framework for general polytropic (GP) hydrodynamic cylinder under self-gravity of infinite length with axial uniformity and axisymmetry. For self-similar dynamic


Star Formation in Molecular Clouds: Observation and Theory
Star-formation (SF) processes occurring on the scale of giant molecular clouds (10 to the 6th solar masses and 10 to the 20th cm) or smaller are discussed, reviewing the results of recent theoretical
The large-scale structure of the universe: Turbulence, intermittency, structures in a self-gravitating medium
The density distribution arising at the nonlinear stage of gravitational instability is similar to intermittency phenomena in acoustic turbulence. Initially small-amplitude density fluctuations of
Self-similar condensation of spherically symmetric self-gravitating isothermal gas clouds
The authors show that similarity solutions for the condensation of spherically symmetric self-gravitating isothermal gas clouds are much more abundant than was hitherto believed; they have discovered
The edges of molecular clouds: Fractal boundaries and density structure
This paper continues a discussion of the manifestations of the highly nonlinear physical equations underlying the dynamics of the dense interstellar medium. Previously, Falgarone and Phillips
Self-similar stellar collapse
Self-similar solutions are found for the collapse of a stellar core with a polytropic equation of state p = kapparho/sup ..gamma../, and 6/5 .. 4/3.
