The attached point topology of the abstract boundary for spacetime

Barry, Richard; Scott, Susan M

Description

Singularities play an important role in general relativity and have been shown to be an inherent feature of most physically reasonable spacetimes. Despite this, there are many aspects of singularities that are not qualitatively or quantitatively understood. The abstract boundary construction of Scott and Szekeres has proven to be a flexible tool with which to study the singular points of a manifold. The abstract boundary construction provides a 'boundary' for any n-dimensional, paracompact,...[Show more]
