  • The only instance when the General Relativistic (GTR) collapse equations have been solved (almost) exactly to explicitly find the metric coefficients is the case of a homogeneous spherical dust (Oppenheimer and Snyder in 1939 in Phy. Rev. 56, 455). The equation (37) of their paper showed the formation of an event horizon for a collapsing homogeneous dust ball of mass M in that the circumference radius the outermost surface, r_b = r_0= 2M in a proper time proportional to r_0^{-1/2} in the limit… CONTINUE READING
