I was wondering if every star had a habitable zone in which planets could have liquid water. I know sun-like stars are the most likely canditates for these type of planets, but what about other types? Would it be possible for a white dwarf to have a habitable zone near it? What about brown dwarves or red giants? Also if the zone was extremly close to the star, what are the chances of a planet forming? What method is used to determine the habitable zone for stars in the first place? Thanks in advance
