Virtual Seminar Series | Yakov Shlapentokh-Rothman, "Naked Singularities for the Einstein Vacuum Equations: The Exterior Solution"

Abstract: We will start by recalling the weak cosmic censorship conjecture.  Then we will review Christodoulou's construction of naked singularities for the spherically symmetric Einstein-scalar field system. Finally, we will discuss joint work with Igor Rodnianski which constructs spacetimes corresponding to the exterior region of a naked singularity for the Einstein vacuum equations.
