# THEORETICAL p-MODE OSCILLATION FREQUENCIES FOR THE RAPIDLY ROTATING δ SCUTI STAR α OPHIUCHI

@article{Deupree2011THEORETICALPO, title={THEORETICAL p-MODE OSCILLATION FREQUENCIES FOR THE RAPIDLY ROTATING $\delta$ SCUTI STAR $\alpha$ OPHIUCHI}, author={Robert G. Deupree}, journal={The Astrophysical Journal}, year={2011}, volume={742}, pages={9} }

A rotating, two-dimensional stellar model is evolved to match the approximate conditions of α Oph. Both axisymmetric and nonaxisymmetric oscillation frequencies are computed for two-dimensional rotating models which approximate the properties of α Oph. These computed frequencies are compared to the observed frequencies. Oscillation calculations are made assuming the eigenfunction can be fitted with six Legendre polynomials, but comparison calculations with eight Legendre polynomials show the… Expand
