Recent Developments in Gravitational Collapse and Spacetime Singularities

Recent Developments in Gravitational Collapse and Spacetime Singularities
by Pankaj S. Joshi, Daniele Malafarina

Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 89

Description:
It is now known that when a massive star collapses under the force of its own gravity, the final fate of such a continual gravitational collapse will be either a black hole or a naked singularity under a wide variety of physically reasonable circumstances within the framework of general theory of relativity. The research of recent years has provided considerable clarity and insight on stellar collapse, black holes and the nature and structure of spacetime singularities. We discuss several of these developments here.
