# Internal instability in a Reissner-Nordström black hole

@article{Simpson1973InternalII, title={Internal instability in a Reissner-Nordstr{\"o}m black hole}, author={Michael Simpson and Roger Penrose}, journal={International Journal of Theoretical Physics}, year={1973}, volume={7}, pages={183-197} }

The question of the effect of asynumetries in gravitational collapse is investigated by considerations of test electromagnetic fields in an extended Reissner-Nordström background. It is found, with ths aid of computer calculations, that instabilities in the test field arise at the inner (Cauchy or anti-event) horizon, though not at the ouier (event) horizon. Thus it is reasonable to infer that in the full coupled Einstein-Maxwell theory the inner horizon will not survive as a non-singular… CONTINUE READING
