The minimum mass appears to be just below 1/10 of a solar mass, and to occur at a central density of ##7 \times 10^{12} \text{g / cm}^3##.
Oops, I see I misread the text; the density I quoted is the density at which ##\Gamma## rises above 4/3 again. The central density at which the minimum mass occurs is ##1.55 \times 10^{14} \text{g / cm}^3##
