We present results on the effect of the stiffness of the equation of state on the dynamical bar-mode instability in rapidly rotating polytropic models of neutron stars in full general relativity. We determine the change in the threshold for the emergence of the instability for a range of the adiabatic Gamma index from 2.0 to 3.0, including two values chosen to mimic more realistic equations of state at high densities.

Abstract

We present results on the effect of the stiffness of the equation of state on the dynamical bar-mode instability in rapidly rotating polytropic models of neutron stars in full general relativity. We determine the change in the threshold for the emergence of the instability for a range of the adiabatic Gamma index from 2.0 to 3.0, including two values chosen to mimic more realistic equations of state at high densities.
