Author(s): Sante Carloni and Daniele Vernieri We construct a covariant version of the Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkoff equations in the case of isotropic sources. The new equations make evident the mathematical problems in the determination of interior solutions of relativistic stellar objects. Using a reconstruction algorithm, we find two physically... [Phys.
