How large can a star be\?
Abstract
In a recent article Schoen and Yau develop an inequality which shows that there exists a relationship between the minimum energy density ρ_{0} in a star and the size R of the star, of the form ρ_{0}R^{2}<=π/6. This article shows that this inequality is valid for two different measures of the size of the star and conjectures that the inequality can be improved to ρ_{0}R^{2}<=3π/32. .AE
