To get the critical length scale (aka Jeans length) for the oscillations, we write the oscillatory condition 47 Thus, the perturbation takes on a form that is oscillatory in x and exponential in time. 48 49 = The Jeans Length = 50 51 To get the critical length scale (aka Jeans length) for the oscillations, we write the oscillatory condition 48 52 49 53 [[latex($C_s^2 k^2 > 4 \pi G \rho_0$)]] … … 58 62 59 63 60 64 = Unstable Modes = 61 65 62 66 What we'd like to do now is determine, for which frequencies is the perturbation ''unstable'' (exponentially growing). In order to determine this we can rewrite [[latex($\omega$)]] into a more intuitive form. … … 87 91 [[latex($\tau = \frac{1}{\Gamma}$)]] 88 92 93 = High lambda limit, i.e. pressureless collapse, i.e. uniform collapse = 94 89 95
