    • Abstract


      Assuming that field theoretic Green’s functions scale, expressions for correlation function, number density, pressure are obtained for a relativistic statistical many-body system. The scaling parameter is related to anomalous dimension and is a measure of interaction. The effect of this interaction on the critical mass of dwarf stars is studied and is not found to be insignificant. A mass radius relation is deduced. The Chandrasekhar limit is reproduced in the limit of non-interaction.
