Dynamics of Gravitating Bodies  

Single Objects in General > s.a. cosmology [with isolated bodies]; gravitating fields [including shells]; neutron stars; pulsars.
* Idea: Study of the dynamics of isolated gravitating bodies, including stars and black holes, and their properties such as conserved quantities; Effective dynamics of extended objects also provides useful approximations for gravitational wave production.
* Inequalities: For a spherically symmetric charged body, 2R > Q; This inequality is sharp.
* In alternative theories: (Unless otherwise specified, in this page gravitational theory is described by 4D general relativity); In scalar-tensor theories there is an interval of mass values in which there is a phase transition (Damour & Esposito-Farčse 92), with the stable configurations being the "scalarized" solutions.
