# Gravitational collapse and spacetime singularities

@inproceedings{Brady2009GravitationalCA, title={Gravitational collapse and spacetime singularities}, author={Patrick R. Brady}, year={2009} }

The nature of gravitational collapse was the subject of debate and controversy for much of the last century. During the 1960’s and 1970’s our understanding of general relativity consolidated and culminated in our modern understanding of black holes and spacetime singularities. Since then, there has been significant advances in understanding the dynamics of gravitational collapse and the nature of singularities that arise from collapse. This series of 5 lectures were presented at the X…

Recent developments in gravitational collapse and spacetime singularities

- Physics
- 2011

It is now known that when a massive star collapses under the force of its own gravity, the final fate of such a continual gravitational collapse will be either a black hole or a naked singularity…

Thermodynamics and gravitational collapse

- Physics
- 2011

It is known now that a typical gravitational collapse in general relativity, evolving from regular initial data and under physically reasonable conditions would end in either a black hole or a naked…

Investigation of gravitational collapse of generalized Vaidya spacetimes.

- Mathematics
- 2015

In this thesis, we study the gravitational collapse of generalized Vaidya spacetimes which describe a combination of lightlike and timelike matter fields, commonly known as Type I and Type II fields,…

Gravitational Collapse in Quantum Einstein Gravity

The existence of spacetime singularities is one of the biggest problems of nowadays physics. According to Penrose, each physical singularity should be covered by a “cosmic censor” which prevents any…

Gravitational collapse of generalised Vaidya spacetime

- Mathematics
- 2014

We study the gravitational collapse of a generalised Vaidya spacetime in the context of the Cosmic Censorship hypothesis. We develop a general mathematical framework to study the conditions on the…

Collapse and dispersal of a homogeneous spin fluid in Einstein–Cartan theory

- Physics
- 2014

In the present work, we revisit the process of gravitational collapse of a spherically symmetric homogeneous dust fluid which is described by the Oppenheimer–Snyder (OS) model (Oppenheimer and Snyder…

Fate Of Gravitational Collapse In Electromagnetic Theory

- Physics
- 2012

In this thesis, we address the issue of gravitational collapse in electromag- netic theory.For this purpose, we adopt two approaches one by assuming charged perfect fuid in the interior of a star and…

Instability of black hole formation in gravitational collapse

- Physics
- 2011

We consider here the classic scenario given by Oppenheimer, Snyder, and Datt, for the gravitational collapse of a massive matter cloud, and examine its stability under the introduction of small…

Singular General Relativity

This work presents the foundations of Singular Semi-Riemannian Geometry and Singular General Relativity, based on the author's research. An extension of differential geometry and of Einstein's…

On the visibility of singularities in general relativity and modified gravity theories

- Mathematics, Physics
- 2021

We argue that the global causal structure of the singularity is not a purely geometric property but also depends on the collapsing matter-field leading to its formation. To show this, we investigate…
