Black holes from high - energy beam – beam collisions


Using a recent technique, proposed by Eardley and Giddings, we extend their results to the high-energy collision of two beams of massless particles, i.e. of two finite-front shock waves. Closed (marginally) trapped surfaces can be determined analytically in several cases even for collisions at nonvanishing impact parameter in D ≥ 4 space-time dimensions. We… (More)
