Item description for Differential Rotation and Stellar Convection (Fluid Mechanics of Astrophysics and Geophysics Vol 5) by G. Rudiger...
Part One is a history of the pioneers in the field of stellar rotation: the attempted solutions, and the small and large steps forward that comprise the backdrop from which the book proceeds. The various sources of differential rotation are discussed in Part Two, the book's main section, which deals with the turbulent transport of energy and angular momentum. In Part three, the previously used formulations are verified with a simple linearized turbulence theory, and the turbulence model best describing the solar convection zone is discussed. Through formulae and analyses, Differential Rotation and Stellar Convection effectively analyzes the reasons why the sun rotates as it does.
