Abstract:

An investigation is made of some general properties of motions of a compressible fluid under the influence of a gravitational field. Motions or time scales for the dissipative effects of viscosity and heat condition are not important, and the motions are small deviations from a basic state of rigidly rotating hydrostatic equilibrium. It is assumed that the gravitational field is externally given, and is not itself affected by the motion. The mathematical model based on these hypotheses is the linear theory of rotating stratified non- dissipative flow.
