The Spectrum of Endstates of Spherical Gravitational Collapse

  • G. Magli
Conference paper


The Cosmic Censorship conjecture in spherical symmetry is re-formulated as the problem of characterizing a set of functions in terms of the behaviour of an ordinary differential equation near a singular point. Existing results and perspectives of this approach are briefly reviewed.
