We calculate density profiles for self-gravitating clusters of an ideal Bose-Einstein gas with nonrelativistic energy-momentum relation and macroscopic mass at thermal equilibrium. Our study includes clusters with planar symmetry in dimensions D=1,2,3, clusters with cylindrical symmetry in D=2,3, and clusters with spherical symmetry in D=3. Wall confinement is imposed where needed to prevent escape. The length scale and energy scale in use for the gaseous phase render density profiles for… 


Problems of Gravitational Stability in the Presence of a Magnetic Field
In this paper a number of problems are considered which are related to the gravitational stability of cosmical masses of infinite electrical conductivity in which there is a prevalent magnetic field.
Systems with negative specific heat
Some systems for which the binding energy increases more rapidly than linearly with the number of particles, are shown to exhibit negative specific heatc for some energies. In thermal contact with
Most probable phase distribution in spherical star systems and conditions for its existence
The initial stages of the evolution of a spherical star system can be pictured in the following way. The stars have their beginning in a comparatively small region; the mechanism of the origin of
The Structure of cold dark matter halos
High resolution N-body simulations show that the density profiles of dark matter halos formed in the standard CDM cosmogony can be fit accurately by scaling a simple “universal” profile. Regardless

The thermodynamics and the collapse of a self-gravitating gas of Brownian particles in D dimensions, in both canonical and microcanonical ensembles are addressed, and the problem in D=2 is solved, which displays rather rich and peculiar features with, in particular, the formation of a Dirac peak in the density profile.
We derive the virial theorem for an overdamped system of rotating self-gravitating Brownian particles. We show that, in the two-dimensional case, it takes a closed form that can be used to obtain
