Published online: 14 February 2018
Based on the findings of our previous studies of fast-rotating Newtonian polytropes, we found the relation between the minimum pulsar rotation period, the value of pulsar central density, and the polytropic index. From this relation we come to the conclusion that the value of minimum central density of a pulsar with a peak period is 2.5088 • 1014 g/cm3.
