Differential rotation, radiative equilibrium, and local hydrodynamic stability in stellar interiors

Abstract:

The problem of angular momentum transport in the radiative zone of the Sun and other stars is currently one of the most discussed in stellar astrophysics. A wide range of local and global instabilities acting in differentially rotating stars have been studied and incorporated in stellar evolutionary codes. In this thesis, I revisit two of the hydrodynamic processes that are thought to operate, namely the Eddington-Sweet (ES) circulation and a global motion induced by the Goldreich-Schubert...
