- Introduction of axial w-mode from axial w-modes

The non-radial neutron star oscillations could be triggered by various mechanisms such as gravitational collapse, a pulsar “glitch” or a phase transition of matter in the inner core.

Axial mode: under the angular transformation θ→ π − θ, ϕ → π + ϕ,

a spherical harmonic function with index ℓ transforms as (−1)ℓ+1 for the expanding metric functions.

Polar mode: transforms as (−1)ℓ

Oscillating neutron star

Axial w-mode from axial w-modes: not accompanied by any matter motions and only the perturbation of the space-time, exists for all relativistic stars, including neutron star and black holes.

One major characteristic of the axial w-mode is its high frequency accompanied by very rapid damping.

The importance for astrophysics from axial w-modes

A network of large-scale ground-based laser-interferometer detectors (LIGO, VIRGO, GEO600, TAMA300) is on-line in detecting the gravitational waves (GW).

Theorists are presently try their best to think of various sources of GWs that may be observable once the new ultra-sensitive detectors operate at their optimum level.

GWs from non-radial neutron star oscillations are considered as one of the most important sources.

The standard axial from axial w-modesw-mode is categorized as wI. The high order axial w-modes are marked as the second w-mode (wI2 -mode), the third mode (wI3 -mode) and so on. An interesting additionally family of axial w-modes is categorized as wII.

It is worth noting that it’s simply an extrapolationfrom low to high densities. This extrapolation may NOT be right as the pion production data(Z.G. Xiao et al, Phys. Rev. Lett. 102, 062502 (2009))showed that the symmetry energy at high density is actually super-soft.

It was shown that only values of from axial w-modesxin the range between −1 (MDIx-1) and 0 (MDIx0) are consistent with the isospin-diffusion and isoscaling data at sub-saturation densities.

Here we assume that the EOS can be extrapolated to supra-saturation densities according to the MDI predictions.

M-R from axial w-modes

Motivation from axial w-modes

The w-modes are very important for astrophysical applications. The gravitational wave frequency of the axial w-mode depends on the neutron star’s structure and properties, which are determined by the EOS of neutron-rich stellar matter.

Heavy-ion reactions provide means to constrain the uncertain density behavior of the nuclear symmetry energy and thus the EOS of neutron-rich nuclear matter.

It is helpful to the detection of gravitational waves to investigate the imprint of the nuclear symmetry energy constrained by very recent terrestrial nuclear laboratory data on the gravitational waves from the axial w-mode.

Exists linear fit

Based on this linear dependence of the scaled frequency, the wII-mode is found to exist about compactness M/R>0.1078.

Conclusion from axial w-modes

1. The density dependence of the nuclear symmetry energy affects significantly both the frequencies and the damping times of axial w-mode.

2. Obtain a better scaling characteristic, especially to the wI2-mode through scaling the eigen-frequency by the gravitational energy.

3. Give a general limit, M/R~0.1078, based on the linear scaling characteristic of wII, below this limit, wII-mode will disappear.

Non-radial oscillation(Newton theory):

The main difference is the perturbation function.

Or in spherical harmonic function, the l=0 is radial oscillation, and l>=1 is non-radial oscillation.

Definition of polar and axial from axial w-modes

gravitational radiation from neutron star oscillations exhibits certain characteristic frequencies which are independent of the processes giving rise to these oscillations. These “quasi-normal” frequencies are directly connected to the parameters of neutron star (mass, charge and angular momentum) and are expected to be inside the bandwidth of the constructed gravitational wave detectors.

There are two classes of vector spherical harmonics (polar and axial) which are build out of combinations of the Levi-Civita volume form and the gradient operator acting on the scalar spherical harmonics. The difference between the two families is their parity. Under the parity operator π (under the angular transformation θ→ π − θ, ϕ → π + ϕ), a spherical harmonic with index ℓ transforms as (−1)ℓ, the polar class of perturbations transform under parity in the same way, as (−1)ℓ, and the axial perturbations as (−1)ℓ+1. Finally, since we are dealing with spherically symmetric space-times the solution will be independent of m, thus this subscript can be omitted.

Note: in fact, now it is already found that there are gravitational waves in axial mode, that is, in the odd-parity pulsations.

The meaning of the complex frequency from axial w-modes

The eigen-frequencies of the modes are complex, the real part gives the pulsation rate and the imaginary part gives the damping time of the pulsation as a result of the emission of the gravitational radiation.

The frequency of different modes from axial w-modes

Typical values of the frequencies and the damping times of various families of modes for a polytropic star (N = 1) with R = 8.86 km and M = 1.27M⊙ are given. p1 is the first p-mode, g1 is the first g-mode, w1 stands for the first curvature mode and wII for the slowest damped interface mode. For this stellar model there are no trapped modes11.

Only consider the space-time, that is, V = W = 0

So the perturbation equations for a specific multi-pole ℓ take the following simple form inside the star
