    • Astromodal wave dynamics in multifluidic structure-forming cloud complexes


      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The evolutionary dynamics of bimodal pulsational mode, arising because of the long-range conjugational gravito-electrostatic interplay in viscoelastic polytropic complex multicomponent astroclouds with partial ionisation, is classically examined using a non-relativistic generalised hydrodynamic model approach. The equilibrium distribution of the diversified constitutive species forms a globally quasi-neutral hydrostatic homogeneous configuration. The primitive set of the astrocloud structuring equations specifically includes polytropic (hydrodynamic action) and nonlinear logatropic barotropic (turbulence action) effects simultaneously. A normal mode analysis over the perturbed cloud results in a unique form of sextic polynomial dispersion relation with variable poly-parametric coefficients. A numerical analysis technique is provided to show the exact nature of the modified viscoelastic (turbo-viscoelastic) pulsational mode in the two extreme hydrodynamic and kinetic regimes. It is seen that, in the former regime, the dust–charge ratio (negatively-to-positively charged grains) plays a destabilising role to the instability. In contrast, the dust–mass ratio (negatively-to-positively charged grains) develops a stabilising influence in the wave-dynamical processes. In the latter regime, the viscoelastic relaxation velocity associated with the positively charged grains acts as an amplitude stabiliser. Conversely, the viscoelastic relaxation velocity of the negatively charged grain fluid introduces destabilising influences. The unique features of the propagatory and non-propagatory mode characteristics are elaborately illustrated. The reliability of the investigated results is judiciously validated by comparing the results with the specific reports available in the literature. Lastly, the first-hand astronomical implications and applications of our study are summarily outlined.
