Astrophysical systems will never be in a real thermodynamic equilibrium: they undergo an evaporation process due to the fact that the gravity is not able to confine the particles. Ordinarily, this difficulty is overcome by enclosing the system in a rigid container which avoids the evaporation. We propose an energetic prescription which is able to confine the particles, leading in this way to an alternative version of the Antonov isothermal model which unifies the well-known isothermal and… Expand
