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

Shocked Interstellar Clouds and Dust Grain Destruction in the LMC Supernova Remnant N132D

From integral field data we extract the optical spectra of 20 shocked clouds in the supernova remnant N132D in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Using self-consistent shock modeling, we derive the



Advanced evolution of massive stars. VII. Silicon burning

In this investigation the stages of ignition, flash, and consumption of silicon are studied for helium cores of mass M/sub b/6, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 32M/sub sun/Both hydrostatic and hydrodynamic

An analytic description of converging shock waves

The similarity solution describing the motion of converging spherical and cylindrical shocks is governed by a set of three ordinary differential equations. Previous descriptions of the shock motion

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 Evolution and fate of Very Massive Objects

The structure and evolution of Very Massive Objects (stars of mass approx.10/sup 2/-10/sup 5/ M/sub sun/) are discussed in terms of simple semianalytic models. We estimate the helium enrichment due

Self-similar gravitational collapse in an expanding universe

We derive similarity solutions which describe the collapse of cold, collisionless matter in a perturbed Einstein-de Sitter universe. We obtain three classes of solutions, one each with planar,

Self-similar collapse of isothermal spheres and star formation.

We consider the problem of the gravitational collapse of isothermal spheres by applying the similarity method to the gas-dynamic flow. We argue that a previous solution obtained by Larson and Penston

Expansion of a Photoionized Stellar Wind

In the late stages of evolution, a star may make a transition from an extended, cool state where it has a slow, dense wind to a compact, hot state where it has a fast wind. The compact star can be a

Strong convergent shock waves near the center of convergence: a power series solution

A Lagrangian formulation of the self-similar convergent shock problem is presented for a quiescent perfect gas of zero pressure. The initial density is either constant or decreasing towards the
