Near the black hole threshold in phase space, the black hole mass as a function of the initial data shows the “critical scaling” M?C(p-p*)?, where p labels a family of initial data, p* is the value of p at the threshold, and the critical exponent ? is universal for a given matter model. The black hole charge Q obeys a similar law. To complete the picture, we include the angular momentum as a perturbation. For the black hole angular momentum L?, we find the oscillating behavior L??Re[(A?+iB?)(p…

We perform fully nonlinear numerical simulations to study aspherical deformations of the critical self-similar solution in the gravitational collapse of ultrarelativistic fluids. Adopting a

This article reviews classical and quantum aspects of critical phenomena in gravitational collapse. We pay special attention to the origin of the scaling law for black hole mass, and to phase

Axisymmetric Numerical Relativity

This thesis is concerned with formulations of the Einstein equations in axisymmetric spacetimes which are suitable for numerical evolutions. We develop two evolution systems based on the (2+1)+1

Critical Phenomena in Gravitational Collapse

TLDR
Critical phenomena give a natural route from smooth initial data to arbitrarily large curvatures visible from infinity, and are therefore likely to be relevant for cosmic censorship, quantum gravity, astrophysics, and the general understanding of the dynamics of general relativity.

Evolving the Bowen-York initial data for spinning black holes

The Bowen-York initial value data typically used in numerical relativity to represent a spinning black hole are not those of a constant-time slice of the Kerr spacetime. If Bowen-York initial data

Nonspherical perturbations of critical collapse and cosmic censorship

Choptuik has demonstrated that naked singularities can arise in gravitational collapse from smooth, asymptotically flat initial data, and that such data have codimension one in spherical symmetry.
