A definition of a Newtonian black hole is possible which incorporates the mass-energy equivalence from special relativity. However, exploiting a double spherical shell model, it will be shown that the ensuing gravitational self-energy and mass renormalization prevent the formation of such an object. 

Gravitomagnetic forces and quadrupole gravitational radiation from special relativity

The mere principle of relativity and Lorentz transformations for the mass current predict, in close analogy to electromagnetism, the existence of gravitomagnetic fields. With the reasonable
