The calculation of the structure of white dwarf and neutron stars is a suitable topic for an undergraduate thesis or an advanced special topics or independent study course. The subject is rich in many different areas of physics, ranging from thermodynamics to quantum statistics to nuclear physics to special and general relativity. The computations for solving the coupled structure differential equations (both Newtonian and general relativistic) can be done using a symbolic computational package… Expand
