Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss a simplified method to formulate the problem of a self-gravitating viscoelastic body: the Pseudo-rigid body method. We will see comparisons of this approach with others commonly presented in some papers and what is the qualitative and quantitative information that this model can provide. We will also remark that there is no need to restrict the problem to the planar case and how it can be easily generalized to the two-body problem.
