The main purpose of this paper is to discuss structure scalars in the context of gravity, where is the Gauss–Bonnet invariant and T is the trace of stress energy tensor. For this aim, we have considered the spherically symmetric spacetime and dissipative anisotropic fluid coupled with radiation and heat ejecting shearing matter distributions. We have found these scalar variables by orthogonally decomposing the Riemann curvature tensor in gravity. Moreover, the evolution equations of shear and expansion are also developed with the help of these scalar functions. We have also analysed these scalars by taking and T as constants for dust cloud. The physical behaviour of structure scalars for radiating matter distributions has been examined in the presence of modified gravity. It is shown that the evolutionary stages of relativistic stellar structures can be explored via modified scalar functions.
