In applying equation (129), we may substitute for p(v) and p{v) the distributions derived for configurations of at least moderate central condensations: as we have stated, the Roche stratification may be expected to provide a sufficiently good approximation for them. VIII. GENERAL AXISYMMETRIC CONFIGURATIONS A general axisymmetric configuration may be specified by giving the distance R(s,n) from the center to a point on the level surface at colatitude d- = cos -1 p.

F + * ! s + o ( ^ ) , « where if is a certain calculable constant, Rs = 2GM/c2 is the Schwarzschild radius, and R is the radius for the configuration. Now if the effects of general relativity and of rotation are both present, and are both considered as first-order effects, then under their combined influence we must have , . ( R . t . , . , + , & _ ^ L + 0 ( „ . ^ | , f i ) . This last result is the essential content of some recent papers by Fowler (1966) and Durney and Roxburgh (1967). While the stabilizing effect of rotation in the limit 7 —* ^ is an unambiguous result, it is not clear how small 7 — § must be to be of "order ft2" in a given practical situation.

Hence for ^ of the chosen form f^pt -grad 3 %dx = 4TG^P2 | ? | Hx (32) = 4TrGf^pHtf+^)dx; and this contribution to u2 (derived from the term in 533) is formally the same as in the absence of rotation. The substitution (30) corresponds to the correct solution both when rotation is absent and also when allowance is made for it to 0(fl2) (see § IVb below); it, therefore, appears as a reasonable choice for the general case even though it cannot correspond to the exact solution.
