This chapter supports and expands upon an accompanying discussion of the construction of a bipolytrope in which the core has an polytropic index and the envelope has an polytropic index. This system is particularly interesting because the entire structure can be described by closedform, analytic expressions. Here we provide an indepth analysis of the work published by J. O. Murphy (1983, Proc. Astr. Soc. of Australia, 5, 175) in which the derivation of this particular bipolytropic configuration was first attempted. As can be seen from the following list of "key references," however, this publication was only one of a series of interrelated works by Murphy. We will henceforth refer to this system as "Murphy's bipolytrope."

Relevant LaneEmden Functions
As is detailed in our accompanying discussion, the LaneEmden function governing the structure of the core of Murphy's bipolytrope is,
and the first derivative of this function with respect to the dimensionless radial coordinate, , is,
Also as is detailed in our accompanying discussion, the LaneEmden function governing the structure of the envelope of Murphy's bipolytrope is,






and the first derivative of this function is,



where we have adopted the shorthand notation,
Chandrasekhar's U and V Functions
As presented by Murphy (1983), most of the development and analysis of this model was conducted within the framework of what is commonly referred to in the astrophysics community as the "UV" plane. Specifically in the context of the model's core, this pair of referenced functions is:












Correspondingly, in the context of the model's envelope, the pair of referenced functions is:


















In an effort to demonstrate correspondence with the published work of Murphy (1983), we have reproduced his expressions for these governing UV functions in the following boxedin image.

The match between our expressions and those presented by Murphy becomes clear upon recognizing that, in our notation,






and, 


and, in laying out these function definitions, Murphy has implicitly assumed that the two scaling coefficients, and , are unity.
CAUTION: Presented in this fashion — that is, by using to represent the dimensionless radial coordinate in all four expressions — Murphy's expressions seem to imply that the independent variable defining the radial coordinate in the bipolytrope's core is the same as the one that defines the radial coordinate in the structure's envelope. In general, this will not be the case, so we have explicitly used a different independent variable, , to mark the envelope's radial coordinate in our expressions. It is clear from other elements of his published derivation that Murphy understood this distinction but, as is explained more fully below, errors in his final model specifications may have resulted from not explicitly differentiating between this variable notation.
Critique of Murphy's Model Characteristics

As a supplement to the preceding two figures, the following table shows in quantitative detail how we are able to analytically derive individual coordinate roots, — see the nexttolast column of the table — from ten different interfacecoordinate locations, , as specified in the first (leftmost) column of the table. The interface parameter, , is determined directly from the specified value of ; the parameter, ; then, given , the root to the cubic equation and, in turn, the value of , are determined; and, finally, a choice of the integer phaseshift parameter, , leads to the calculation of . For comparison, the last (rightmost) column of the table lists the corresponding coordinate, , as originally derived and published by Murphy (1983). Coordinate pairs shown in the orangecolored panels of our table correspond to the six models whose characteristics are provided in Murphy's Table 3; coordinate pairs shown in the greencolored panels correspond to two of the ten "F2 = 0" roots identified in Murphy's Table 1; and the additional three coordinate pairs shown in the bluecolored panels have been drawn from Murphy's Table 2.

As this table and the loglog plots presented in two preceding figures illustrate, by and large, the agreement between our analytically determined coordinate roots and those derived & published by Murphy (1983) is excellent. There are a couple of mismatches, but we attribute both to typesetting errors in the Murphy publication:
 The coordinate, , that has been displayed using a red font in the rightmost column of our table is the value drawn directly from Murphy's Table 3. It appears to us that two digits of this number were inadvertently transposed during publication and that the coordinate value should have appeared as . We are convinced that, as published, this is a typographical error in Murphy's Table 3 because: (a) the corrected value matches our derived value of that coordinate to more significant figures, and (b) the same model is also listed in Murphy's Table 2 with this corrected value.
 The coordinate, , that has been displayed using a red font in the leftmost column of our table is the value drawn directly from Murphy's Table 3. As shown in our table, from this coordinate value we derive a root coordinate of , which is almost a factor of ten larger than Murphy's published root coordinate value, . Working backwards via an iterative procedure, we have determined that Murphy's listed root of 33.0249 can be obtained if the originating value of is set to 2.10961 (see the blackonwhite panel entry in the leftmost column of our table). By replacing the "6" by a zero in Murphy's published coordinate parameter — that is, by assuming that there was a typographical error and Murphy's interface coordinate was actually , we are able to derive a root coordinate value (31.9964) that is quite close to Murphy's published value (33.0249).
