# Remarks on the distributional Schwarzschild geometry

@article{Heinzle2002RemarksOT, title={Remarks on the distributional Schwarzschild geometry}, author={J. Mark Heinzle and Roland Steinbauer}, journal={Journal of Mathematical Physics}, year={2002}, volume={43}, pages={1493-1508} }

This work is devoted to a mathematical analysis of the distributional Schwarzschild geometry. The Schwarzschild solution is extended to include the singularity; the energy momentum tensor becomes a δ-distribution supported at r=0. Using generalized distributional geometry in the sense of Colombeau’s (special) construction the nonlinearities are treated in a mathematically rigorous way. Moreover, generalized function techniques are used as a tool to give a unified discussion of various…
