Abstract

ACCORDING to modern views the substance of the sun and stars is in a state closely approximating to that of a perfect gas. These spherical gaseous bodies have been extensively studied on the basis of classical thermodynamics. It can scarcely be doubted that the internal layers of a star are in an almost perfect thermodynamical equilibrium having a radiative character, as has been convincingly established by Eddington.
