Comparison of the density, temperature, mass fraction, and luminosity profiles between the original and relaxed MESA models. The relaxed model is slightly hotter in the core, but the density profiles are very similar. The mass fraction profile is identical by construction. The relaxed model has the imposed Lr ∝ Mr profile, which is significantly different than the luminosity profile of the original model.
