In this paper we study the compressible fluid model of uniformly rotating starts. It was proved in [Li] that for a given mass, there exists an equilibrium solution to the problem if the angular velocity is less than a certain constant. On the other hand for large angular velocities there is no equilibrium solution. In this paper we give an a-priori bound on diameters and the number of connected components of white dwarfs. 
A remark on the geometry of uniformly rotating stars
Asymptotic estimates for slowly rotating Newtonian stars
This work is mainly concerned with the rotating Newtonian stars with prescribed angular velocity law. For general compressible fluids, the existence of rotating star solutions was proved by using
This paper considers compressible fluid models for a Newtonian rotating star. For fixed mass and large angular momentum, stable solutions to the associated Navier-Stokes-Poisson system are
Existence of Magnetic Compressible Fluid Stars
The existence of magnetic star solutions which are axi-symmetric stationary solutions for the Euler–Poisson system of compressible fluids coupled to a magnetic field is proved in this paper by a
The existence of solutions of the equations for a self-gravitating uid with prescribed angular velocity law is proved. The conditions on the angular velocity are nearly optimal. The system is
Existence of Rotating Planet Solutions to the Euler–Poisson Equations with an Inner Hard Core
The Euler–Poisson equations model rotating gaseous stars. Numerous efforts have been made to establish the existence and properties of the rotating star solutions. Recent interests in extrasolar
The existence of stationary star solutions for compressible magnetohydrodynamic flows
In this paper, we are concerned with the compressible Euler-Poisson system coupled to a magnetic field in the three-dimensional space. Based on a variational method and the exact expression of the
On the Expanding Configurations of Viscous Radiation Gaseous Stars: Isentropic and Thermodynamic Models
In this work, we study the stability of the expanding configurations for radiation gaseous stars. Such expanding configurations exist for the isentropic model and the thermodynamic model. In

A model concerning radiational gaseous stars is introduced and the existence theory of stationary solutions to the free boundary problem of hydrostatic equations describing the radiative equilibrium is established.


The maximum mass of ideal white dwarfs
The theory of thepolytropic gas spheres in conjunction with the equation of state of arelativislically degenerate electrongas leads to aunique value for the mass of a star built on this model. This
An Introduction to the Study of Stellar Structure
EDDINGTON'S “Internal Constitution of the Stars” was published in 1926 and gives what now ranks as a classical account of his own researches and of the general state of the theory at that time. Since
The Chandrasekhar theory of stellar collapse as the limit of quantum mechanics
Starting with a “relativistic” Schrödinger Hamiltonian for neutral gravitating particles, we prove that as the particle numberN→∞ and the gravitation constantG→0 we obtain the well known
The fifth edition of Horace Lamb's text-book is welcome, for it contains not only all the good features of its predecessors, but also most valuable accounts of recent discoveries.
Sur la Stabilite de l'Equilibre des Figures Pyriformes Affectees par une Masse Fluide en Rotation
J’ai publie autrefois dans le Tome 7 des ‘Acta Mathematica’ un memoire sur I’equilibre d’une masse fluide en rotation. C’est a ce memoire que je renverrai souvent dans la suite en ecrivant simplement
