# Mass inflation in f(R) gravity ? A conjecture on the resolution of the mass inflation singularity

@article{Hwang2011MassII, title={Mass inflation in f(R) gravity ? A conjecture on the resolution of the mass inflation singularity}, author={Dong-il Hwang and Bum-hoon Lee and Dong-han Yeom}, journal={Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics}, year={2011}, volume={2011}, pages={006-006} }

We study gravitational collapse of a charged black hole in f(R) gravity using double-null formalism. We require cosmological stability to f(R) models; we used the Starobinsky model and the R+(1/2)cR2 model. Charged black holes in f(R) gravity can have a new type of singularity due to higher curvature corrections, the so-called f(R)-induced singularity, although it is highly model-dependent. As the advanced time increases, the internal structure will approach the Cauchy horizon, which may not be…

Black holes as possible sources of closed and semiclosed worlds.

- Physics, MedicinePhysical review. D, Particles and fields

It is shown that instead of the singularity the closed world can be formed inside the black hole and it is argued that this property of this model may also be valid in a more general case provided the gravitation theory is asymptotically free and the limiting curvature exists.
