    • Abstract


      Polytropic gas spheres of index 1 and extremely high central densities are analysed with the help of general relativistic field equations. Parameters such as the radius and mass are calculated for different central densities. The limiting values of these quantities are obtained and the physical nature of sound waves in these bodies is verified.
