Title of program: TOROID Catalogue Id: AAAE_v1_0 Nature of problem This program solves the structure equations determining the equilibrium configurations of a self-gravitating, axisymmetric, perfectly conducting polytrope with the polytropic index n(>=1)in the presence of a toroidal magnetic field. Parameters, such as mass, volume, radius etc. , characterizing an equilibrium configuration are calculated. In addition, frequencies of the characteristic modes of oscillation are determined using Chandrasekhar's virial tensor method and assuming that the ratio of th ...
