Abstract

"Given spherical symmetry, Einstein's gravitational field equations are reduced to a single, second order, linear, homogeneous differential equation. The solution of this equation for a homogeneous sphere is identical with Schwarzschild's solution...Values of relative density, interior mass, relative pressure, relative and absolute temperature are obtained as functions of radius, r, and are compared with corresponding values for the homogeneous sphere, and for a model sun"--Abstract, page v.
