On the shape of rotating stars.
Presented by Mr. Peter NICOL on 13 Jul 2011 from 15:15 to 15:30
Type: Oral Presentation
Track: Track D1 - Astrophysics
<p>I adapt a recent work by Zahn et al. on the shape of rapidly rotating stars to explore the degree of oblateness for uniform, differential and shellular rotation of the star. I also discuss the relation of these results to the classical Roche limit.
