The present work represents a step in dealing with stellar structure using a pure geometric approach. Geometric field theory is used to construct a model for a spherically symmetric configuration. In this case, two solutions have been obtained for the field equations. The first represents an interior solution which may be considered as a pure geometric one in the sense that the tensor describing the material distributions is not a phenomenological object, but a part of the geometric structure used. A general equation of state for a perfect fluid, is obtained from, and not imposed on, the model. The second solution gives rise to Schwarzschild exterior field in its isotropic form. The two solutions are matched, at a certain boundary, to evaluate the constants of integration. The interior solution obtained shows that there are different zones characterizing the configuration: a central radiation dominant zone, a probable convection zone as a physical interpretation of the singularity of the model, and a corona like zone. The model may represent a type of main sequence stars. The present work shows that Einstein’s geometerization scheme can be extended to gain more physical information within material distribution, with some advantages.
