In the Newtonian case examples have been constructed by Rein [127]. (In that case static solutions are defined to be those where the particle current vanishes.) For a fluid there is an existence theorem for solutions which are stationary but not static (models for rotating stars).

The rigorous investigation of the spherically symmetric collapse of collisionless matter in general relativity was initiated by Rein and the author [133], who showed that the evolution of small initial data leads to geodesically complete spacetimes where the density and curvature fall off at large times.
