Index to Free-Energy Analyses

I have put this index together in an effort to help me, first find, then keep track of all chapters that discuss the use of a free-energy expression and/or virial equilibrium constructs to analyze the structure and stability of spherically symmetric configurations.

First, let's explain what the topic is of each chapter that is currently (up to July 2016) in the template titled, LSU_HBook_SSC_Structure.

Solution Strategies:

Detailed Force-Balance
(Introduction)

Virial Equilibrium
(Introduction)
