Fig. 1.


Panels a and b: horizontal shear flow U(y) on a local polar plane rotating with angular speed Ω in the radiative zone of a rotating star. The radiative and convective zones, colored as yellow and orange with the transition altitude zc, are the configuration of low-mass stars; it should be inverted for early-type stars. Panel c: horizontal shear flow profile U(y) with an inflection point U″ = 0 for the inflectional instability. Panel d: Rayleigh discriminant Φ(y) = f0(f0U′) for the inertial instability configuration.
