Abstract Naber provides an elementary introduction to the geometrical methods and notions used in special and general relativity. Particular emphasis is placed on the ideas concerned with the structure of space-time and that play a role in the Penrose-Hawking singularity theorems. The concept of a space-time singularity - where time and space itself become infinite and undifferentiated - is one of the most fascinated and confounding problems of modern physics.

Physical phenomena in astrophysics and cosmology 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 and relativistic astrophysics, and is the foundation of black hole physics.

The author's primary Price: $ SPACETIME SINGULARITIES: The STORY of BLACK HOLES We have already seen that the Big Bang is a kind of ’singularity’ in the structure of spacetime.

To the question "what was before the Big Bang?", one can reply, at least in the context of GR, that the question actually has no meaning - that time has no meaning ’before’ the Big Size: 2MB.

This book is an elementary introduction to thegeometrical methods and notions used in special and general relativity. Particular emphasis is placed on the ideas concerned with the structure of spacetime and those which play a role in the Penrose-Hawking singularity theorems.

The books gives a rigorous proof of the simplest of these ts: by: The theorems of Hawking and Penrose show that space-times are likely to contain incomplete geodesics. Such geodesics are said to end at a singularity if it is impossible to continue the space-time and geodesic without violating the usual topological and smoothness conditions on the space-time.

In this book the different possible singularities are defined, and the mathematical methods needed to. The present understanding of the status of spacetime singularities is reviewed.

The term 'spacetime singularity' is defined, the ideal-point prescription for adjoining the boundary points representing singularities to an (inextendable) spacetime manifold is outlined, and examples of the ideal-point structure of several familiar spacetimes are : Penrose, R.

In §, we discuss the problem of defining singularities in space–time. We adopt b-incompleteness, a generalization of the idea of geodesic incompleteness, as an indication that singular points have been cut out of space–time, and characterize two possible ways in which b-incompleteness can be associated with some form of curvature Cited by: 2.

This book investigates these issues, and shows how the visible ultra-dense regions arise naturally and generically as an outcome of dynamical gravitational collapse. It will be of interest to graduate students and academic researchers in gravitation physics, fundamental physics, astrophysics, and : Pankaj S.

Joshi. We give here an overview of our basic understanding of and recent developments in spacetime singularities in the Einstein theory of gravity. Several issues related to physical significance and implications of singularities are discussed.

I liked the book because it's always entertaining to read two great minds bicker a little bit, and I did learn some information about black and white holes, singularities, and the origins of the universe, but I didn't understand most of the book/5.

The aim of this essay is to investigate certain aspects of the geometry of the spacetime manifold in the General Theory of Relativity with particular reference to the occurrence of singularities in cosmological solutions and their relation with other global properties.
