Homologous Solutions Of The Lane -Emden Equation For Stellar Structure - From My Astrophysics Lecture Notes

Notes from my 6- lecture advanced stellar astrophysics course given at the Harry Bayley Observatory in 1978, e.g.

Note:  While high speed computers now do the computational work of stellar modeling, the theoretical basis - e.g. applying the Lane -Emden function to theoretical polytropic gas spheres-   remains the same.
