#### On-line bibliography about Boson Stars (BS) *(Compiled by Bruno Mundim, May 2005)*

The fastest way of diving on BS studies is carefully reproduce the main
calculations explicitly done by Kevin (Chi-Wai) Lai in his Phd thesis:
- C.W. Lai, "
*A Numerical Study of Boson Stars*", Phd thesis, UBC (2004) gr-qc/0410040

If you are wondering about the existence of BS, there is a good review addressing
the issues of existence, BS classification and its possible signatures for
detection:
A little bit more of motivation...
and finally the classical review of on gravitational equilibrium configurations
of scalar fields-boson stars-in the framework of a Newtonian and of a general
relativistic treatment. A must-read!
On the moment we are investigating the maximal critical mass for an
Einstein-Klein-Gordon-like system with self-interaction potencial.
Below it is listed some papers considering several different self-interaction
potentials:

The most recent that I found was the following paper:
