A semi-linear wave model for critical collapse

  title={A semi-linear wave model for critical collapse},
  author={Isabel Su'arez Fern'andez and Rodrigo Vicente and David Hilditch},
  journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology},
In spherical symmetry compelling numerical evidence suggests that in general relativity solutions near the threshold of black hole formation exhibit critical behavior. One aspect of this is that threshold solutions themselves are self-similar and are, in a certain sense, unique. To an extent yet to be fully understood, the same phenomena persist beyond spherical symmetry. It is therefore desirable to construct models that exhibit such symmetry at the threshold of blow-up. Starting with… Expand

Universality of Curvature Invariants in Critical Vacuum Gravitational Collapse.
It is found that near-critical spacetimes exhibit behavior similar to scalar-field collapse: for different families of initial data, the authors observe universal "echoes" in the form of irregularly repeating, approximate, scaled copies of the same piece of spacetime. Expand
Critical phenomena in the gravitational collapse of electromagnetic dipole and quadrupole waves
We report on critical phenomena in the gravitational collapse of electromagnetic waves. Generalizing earlier results that focused on dipole electromagnetic waves, we here compare with quadrupoleExpand


The Cauchy problem in General Relativity
The paper revisits some of the classical and recent results on the Cauchy problem in General Relativity. Special emphasis is put on the problems concerning existence of a Cauchy development,Expand
Global aspects of the Cauchy problem in general relativity
It is shown that, given any set of initial data for Einstein's equations which satisfy the constraint conditions, there exists a development of that data which is maximal in the sense that it is anExpand
