The self-gravitating Fermi gas


We discuss the nature of phase transitions in the self-gravitating Fermi gas at non-zero temperature. This study can be relevant for massive neutrinos in Dark Matter models and for collisionless self-gravitating systems experiencing a “violent relaxation”. Below a critical energy (in the microcanonical ensemble) or below a critical temperature (in the… (More)
