The maximum mass of ideal white dwarfs
The theory of thepolytropic gas spheres in conjunction with the equation of state of arelativislically degenerate electrongas leads to aunique value for the mass of a star built on this model. This mass (=0.9I⊙) is interpreted as representing the upper limit to the mass of an ideal white dwarf.

Continuous Article Publishing mode
Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
