Polytropes: Implications for Molecular Clouds and Dark Matter

Abstract

Molecular clouds are supported against their own self-gravity by several different sources of pressure: thermal pressure, mean magnetic pressure, and turbulent pressure. Multi-pressure polytropes, in which each of these pressures is proportional to a power of the density, can account for many of the observed properties of molecular clouds. The agreement… (More)
