# On the crossing of thin shells

The crossing of two dust shells is considered as a simplified model of a collapsing thick layer of dust. We use the Israel's formalism to describe the development of two shells of dust which interact only gravitationally. The formalism is developed in both Schwarzschild and Kruskal coordinates.
