Hydrostatic equilibrium and energy conservation determine the conditions in the gravitationally stabilized solar fusion reactor. We assume a matter density distribution varying non-linearly through the central region of the Sun. The analytic solutions of the differential equations of mass conservation, hydrostatic equilibrium, and energy conservation, together with the equation of state of the perfect gas and a nuclear energy generation rate
, are given in terms of Gauss' hypergeometric
function. This model for the structure of the Sun gives the run of density,
mass, pressure, temperature, and nuclear energy generation through the central
region of the Sun. Because of the assumption of a matter density distribution,
the conditions of hydrostatic equilibrium and energy conservation are separated
from the mode of energy transport in the Sun.
