A Family of Well Behaved Uncharged Model of Vaidya–Tikekar Type Super-Dense Star

Jitendra Kumar, Amit Kumar Prasad


In the present article a model of well-behaved uncharged super-dense star with surface density 2×1014 gm/cm3  is developed by considering a static spherically symmetric metric with t= const hyper surfaces as hyperboloid. So far well-behaved model described by such metric could not be obtained for uncharged fluid. Maximum mass of the star is found to be  0.343121M and the corresponding radius is 9.576299 Km. The red shift at the centre and on the surface are given as 0.076792 and 0.031726 respectively.
