Stability theory of gaseous stars

PDE and Applied Math Seminar

Speaker: Juhi Jang, UC Riverside
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Tue, Jan 11 2011, 3:10PM

 I'll discuss stability theory of Lane-Emden equilibrium stars under Euler-Poisson or Navier-Stokes-Poisson system. A linear stability can be characterized by the adiabatic exponent $\gamma$. A nonlinear instability will also be discussed.
