The general exact solution describing the dynamics of anisotropic elastic spheres supported only by tangential stresses is reduced to a quadrature using Ori's mass-area coordinates. This leads to the explicit construction of the root equation governing the nature of the central singularity. Using this equation, we formulate and motivate on physical grounds a conjecture on the nature of this singularity. The conjecture covers a large sector of the space of initial data; roughly speaking, it… Expand
Gravitational collapse with non-vanishing tangential stresses II: extension to the charged case and general solution
The exact solutions of the Einstein field equations describing spherically symmetric, ani-sotropic elastic spheres supported only by tangential stresses are generalized to the case of materialsExpand

Role of initial data in the gravitational collapse of inhomogeneous dust.
It is found that the end state of the collapse of a spherically symmetric inhomogeneous dust cloud described by the Tolman-Bondi models is either a black hole or a naked singularity, depending on the parameters of the initial density distribution. Expand

It is shown here that shell crossing is inevitable in the gravitational collapse of weakly charged ({vert bar}charge density{vert bar}{lt}mass density) dust spheres, and its potential to affect drasticallymore » the causal structure, is in remarkable contrast to common ideas about charged-dust collapse.
