Title of program: POLOID Catalogue Id: AAAE_v2_0 [AAAI] Nature of problem This program is designed to integrate the exact equations, which determine the distribution of the density of a self-gravitating, axisymmetric polytrope of infinite conductivity containing a poloidal magnetic field. In addition other properties of an equilibrium configuration such as mass, volume, radius etc. are calculated. The program can also provide at very small extra cost the rate of change of the density with respect to changes of the polytropic index, n, and of the parameter lambda which ...
