  • It has recently been shown that time-like spherical collapse of a physical fluid in General Relativity does not permit formation of “trapped surfaces.” This result followed from the fact that the formation of a trapped surface in a physical fluid would cause the time-like world lines of the collapsing fluid to become null at the would-be trapped surface, thus violating the Principle of Equivalence in General Theory of Relativity (GTR). For the case of the spherical collapse of a physical fluid… CONTINUE READING
