We establish the existence of a multi-parameter family of radial singular polytropes (solutions to an elliptic boundary value problem modeling a thermal structure, such as plasma) in the presence of heat diffusion, and generation-radiation. We prove that such branches of solutions exist for heat generation exponents ranging between the Serrin exponent and the Sobolev exponent.
