5 Global Existence for Small 4 Newtonian Theory and Special 4.2 Kinetic theory

4.3 Elasticity theory

There is an extensive literature on mathematical elasticity theory but the mathematics of self-gravitating elastic bodies seems to have been largely neglected. An existence theorem for spherically symmetric elastic bodies in general relativity was mentioned in Section  3.1 . More recently, Beig and Schmidt [27] proved an existence theorem for static elastic bodies subject to Newtonian gravity, which need not be spherically symmetric.
