I'm having a hard time understanding what the arguments against stable toroidal black holes are saying. For many of these, I can't figure out if they're talking about: A non-rotating toroidal event ...
I recently came across the interesting statement that most definitions of cosmic censorship (CC), and most work on proving it, don't exclude something that Hawking calls a "thunderbolt" (Penrose 1978, ...
Hubeny's 1998 paper got a lot of people interested in determining whether cosmic censorship can be violated by dropping too much charge onto a black hole. It suggested that you might be able to get a ...
In special relativity every frame has its own unique time axis, represented in Minkowski diagrams by a fan-out of time vectors that grows infinitely dense as you approach the surface of the light cone ...
Why does the cosmic censorship conjecture hold so well? Penrose proposed spacelike singularities and closed timelike curves are always hidden behind event horizons in general relativity. His ...
The currently accepted theory of the expansion of the universe would suggest that for any point in the universe, there is a 'boundary' (somewhat like the Schwarzschild radius) beyond which it cannot ...
I want to get a grip about the technical problems related to proving Penrose conjecture Intuitively, it seems it should not be too difficult; just start by classifying it in 0-dimensional (i.e: ...
The weak cosmic censorship states that any singularity cannot be in the causual past of null infinity (reference). The topological censorship hypothesis states that in a globally hyperbolic, ...
I would like to know how important the cosmic censorship conjecture is? Should a quantum theory of gravity must obey this? It was never rigorously proved in classical GR too. What would be the ...
