In science:

Left: internal profile of U (r), where u(r, θ) the vertical component of the velocity of the meridional circulation is u(r, θ) = U (r) P2 (cos θ) with P2 the second Legendre polynomial.
Effects of rotation on the evolution of primordial stars
As described in Meynet & Maeder (2000), the meridional circulation establishes then very quickly (1-2% of the MS time) an equilibrium pro file of Ω(r) inside the star with the core spinning faster than the surface.
Effects of rotation on the evolution of primordial stars
In the left panel of Fig. 3, we show the internal profile of the radial component of the meridional circulation. L et us focus on the outer cell, which transports the angular momentum outward, when U (r) is negative.
Effects of rotation on the evolution of primordial stars
The amplitude of the meridional circulation is a factor 6 higher in the standard metallicity model (Z = 0.020) than in the Z = 0.002 one.
Effects of rotation on the evolution of primordial stars
This illustrates the effect of the Gratton¨Opik term (see Sect. 2.1) in the expression of the meridional circulation velocity U (r): when the metallicity decreases, stars are more compact, so the density increases, and thus U (r) decreases.
Effects of rotation on the evolution of primordial stars
At standard metallicity, although the amplitude of the meridional circulation is large, the loss of angular momentum through the radiative winds has the strongest effect, and the equatorial velocity slows down.
Effects of rotation on the evolution of primordial stars
This is not surprising, since the meridional circulation is higher in more massive stars (which have a less dense envelope), allowing the transport of angular momentum that is lacking in lower mass models.
Effects of rotation on the evolution of primordial stars
The main problem is the weakness of the meridional circulation, which does not efficiently feed the outer layers with angular momentum taken from the fast spinning core.
Effects of rotation on the evolution of primordial stars
Rempel et al. 2009) combined with insights about meridional and other large-scale flows (e.g.
Temporal Variability of Stars and Stellar Systems
However there is still considerable controversy even for the Sun about how and where the field is generated and what physical processes (differential rotation, meridional flow) control the magnetic cycle. (e.g.

Key words and phrases. knots, closed incompressible surface, meridionally small, bridge number, thin position, width, waist, trunk, supertrunk, hull number, 3-width.
Waist and trunk of knots
See for the characterization of genus two closed incompressible and meridionally incompressible surfaces in the 3-bridge knot complements.
Waist and trunk of knots
We answer this problem partially by Theorem 1.7. A knot K is called meridional ly smal l if there exists no essential surface in the exterior E (K ) of K with meridional boundary.
Waist and trunk of knots
We remark that by , small knots are meridionally small and the converse holds if w(K ) = 1.
Waist and trunk of knots
If a knot K is meridional ly smal l, then trunk(K ) = 2bridge(K ).
