Gravitational collapse and spacetime singularities

Author: Pankaj S Joshi
Publisher: Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2007.
Series: Cambridge monographs on mathematical physics.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Physical phenomena in astrophysics involve gravitational collapse in a fundamental way. The final fate of a massive star when it collapses under its own gravity at the end of its life cycle is one of the most important questions in gravitation theory & relativistic astrophysics, & is the foundation of black hole physics.
