Abstract: Motivated by the fact that two-component confined fermionic gases in Bardeen-Cooper- Schrieffer-Bose-Einstein condensate (BCS-BEC) crossover can be described through an hydrodynamical approach, we study these systems-both in the cigar-shaped configuration and in the disc-shaped one-by using a polytropic Lagrangian density. We start from the Popov Lagrangian density and obtain, after a dimensional reduction process, the equations that control the dynamics of such systems. By solving these equations we study the sound velocity as a function of the density by analyzing how the dimensionality affects this velocity.
