Vogt-Russell Theorem

    I have a 20 minutes presentation about Vogt-Russell theorem and to discuss how to model stellar structures.

    Can someone provide me with some hints and some important details that I should mention in my presentation?
    I would appreciate it if someone can provide me with a good site.

    I've never heard of this theorem and I don't know where to start.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    if you've never heard of the theorem before, I'd start here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vogt-Russell_theorem

    I'd also go over the basic ideas behind stellar structure, like hydrostatic equilibrium and the various stellar structure equations
