Kumar, S.S., 1963: Structure of stars of very low mass. Astrophys. J., 137, 1121-1125, doi:10.1086/147589.

Completely convective models have been constructed for stars of masses 0.09, 0.08, 0.07, 0.06, 0.05, and 0.04 (solar units), taking into account the non-relativistic degeneracy of the stellar material. It is shown that there is a lower limit to the mass of a main-sequence star. The stars with mass less than this limit become completely degenerate stars or "black" dwarfs as a consequence of gravitational contraction, and, therefore, they never go through the normal stellar evolution.
