Comparison of Nonviscous/Viscous Evolutions

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Here we show side by side the viscous and nonvisous evolutions for n=3.  The effects of magnetic braking and viscosity work together to drive the star to uniform rotation. However, the inclusion of viscosity accelerates the process and damps out the radial oscillations as well.
