Geometric properties of critical collapse.

  title={Geometric properties of critical collapse.},
  author={Jun-qi Guo and Hongsheng Zhang},
Critical collapse of a massless scalar field in spherical symmetry is systematically studied. Regarding the methodology, we combine numerical simulations and asymptotic analysis, and synthesize critical collapse, spacetime singularities, and complex science. The first approximate analytic expression for the metric components near the center is obtained. The spacetime in a small fraction of the discrete self-similar region is nearly conformally flat, which is one fundamental geometric feature… CONTINUE READING
