  1. Feb 8, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Consider a perfect fluid in a static, circularly symmetric (2+1)-dimensional spacetime.

    Derive the analogue of the Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkov (TOV) equation for (2+1)-dimensions

    2. Relevant equations
    Schwarzchild metric

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Okay. I'm trying to think this through. I've replaced the phi component of the schwarzchild metric with some random variable because we only need circular symmetry. but where do I go from here?
