  • Published 2008


A system of self-gravitating massive fermions is studied in the framework of the general-relativistic Thomas-Fermi model. We study the properties of the free energy functional and its relation to Einstein’s field equations. A self-gravitating fermion gas we then describe by a set of Thomas-Fermi type self-consistency equations. Thermodynamical properties of… (More)
