An exact solution for an isothermal gas cloud with fast differential rotation
Abstract
Properties of an isothermal selfgravitating gas cloud with fast differential rotation, infinite extension, a flattened density distribution, and finite central density are discussed. It is described by a simple exact solution of the equations of structure of selfgravitating and rotating gaseous masses. These are transformed to a simple differential equation which seems appropriate for search of exact solutions. Further attempts to find other exact solutions are discussed.
