Brans-Dicke analogue of the Roberts geometry

We report a new one-parameter family of spherically symmetric, inhomogeneous, and time-dependent solutions of the vacuum Brans-Dicke field equations which are conformal to the Roberts scalar field

Junction conditions in scalar–tensor theories

We analyze junction conditions at a null or non-null hypersurface in a large class of scalar–tensor theories in arbitrary dimensions. After showing that the metric and a scalar field must be

Quantum imploding scalar fields

Here what happens in canonical quantum gravity is investigated and extrapolation and approximation of two minispace Hamiltonian systems indicates that the quantum mechanical wave function can be finite at the origin.

Scalar field collapse with negative cosmological constant

The formation of black holes or naked singularities is studied in a model in which a homogeneous time-dependent scalar field with an exponential potential couples to four-dimensional gravity with

Imploding scalar fields

Static spherically symmetric uncoupled scalar space–times have no event horizon and a divergent Kretschmann singularity at the origin of the coordinates. The singularity is always present so that

A mathematical theory of gravitational collapse

We study the asymptotic behaviour, as the retarded timeu tends to infinity, of the solutions of Einstein's equations in the spherically symmetric case with a massless scalar field as the material

Event horizons in static scalar-vacuum space-times

The following theorem is established. Every zero-mass scalar field which is gravitationally coupled, static and asymptotically flat, becomes singular at a simply-connected event horizon. In the

Stationary black holes with time-dependent scalar fields

It has been well known since the 1970s that stationary black holes do not generically support scalar hair. Most of the no-hair theorems which support this depend crucially upon the assumption that

Violating the Weak Cosmic Censorship Conjecture in Four-Dimensional Anti-de Sitter Space.

We consider time-dependent solutions of the Einstein-Maxwell equations using anti-de Sitter (AdS) boundary conditions, and provide the first counterexample to the weak cosmic censorship conjecture in

Violating weak cosmic censorship in AdS$_4$

We consider time-dependent solutions of the Einstein-Maxwell equations using anti-de Sitter (AdS) boundary conditions, and provide the first counterexample to the weak cosmic censorship conjecture in

Analytic example of critical behaviour in scalar field collapse

An exact one parameter () family of solutions representing scalar field collapse is shown to exhibit a type of critical behaviour which has been discussed by Choptuik. The three possible evolutions

Critical Behaviour in Scalar Field Collapse

I present an account of the discovery of critical behaviour in spherically-symmetric general-relativistic collapse of a scalar field, φ. Using an adaptive mesh-refinement algorithm in conjunction

THE SPLITTING OF THE RIEMANN TENSOR

The antidual part of the Riemann tensor R/sub ijkm/ in four dimensions has been studied by Rainich and Einstein. It is reducible to the contracted curvature tensor R/sub ik/. The selfdual part of
