Intersections of Self-Gravitating Charged Shells in a Reissner-Nordstrom Field
We describe the equation of motion of two charged spherical shells with tangential pressure in the field of a central Reissner–Nordstrom (RN) source. We solve the problem of determining the motion of


On crossing dust shells
The crossing of two dust shells is considered as a simplified model for shell crossing during the spherically symmetric collapse of dust. It is shown that one encounters the same problems as in the
Thin spherical shells
The equation of motion of a thin spherical timelike shell is obtained directly from the Lanczos equations for all spherically symmetric embedding four-geometries. No explicit form for the intrinsic
Charged shells in general relativity and their gravitational collapse
The boundary conditions for the gravitational and electromagnetic fields on charged shells are formulated. The shells are characterized in geometrical terms and the boundary conditions are manifestly
Singular hypersurfaces and thin shells in general relativity
SummaryAn approach to shock waves, boundary surfaces and thin shells in general relativity is developed in which their histories are characterized in a purely geometrical way by the extrinsic
