The equations of hydrostatic and thermal equilibrium, assuming only radiative energy transport and spherical symmetry, are solved in Eulerian coordinates by a suitable modification of the Henyey method. An Eulerian approach may possibly be more suitably extended to more spatial dimensions than the usual Langrangian procedure. The principle advantage of this method is that the equations of hydrostatic and thermal equilibrium and Poisson's equation may be solved simultaneously.
