On the Non-Radial Oscillations of a Star III. A Reconsideration of the Axial Modes

Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, Valeria Ferrari

Abstract

It is shown that for stars with radii in the range 2.25 GM/c$^{2}$ < R < ca. 3GM/c$^{2}$, quasinormal axial modes of oscillation are possible. These modes are explicitly evaluated for stellar models of uniform energy density.
