Strengths of naked singularities in Tolman-Bondi spacetimes. (English) Zbl 0587.53063
Christodoulou’s recent analysis of naked singularities [see Commun. Math. Phys. 93, 171-195 (1984)] in time-symmetric Tolman-Bondi collapse is simplified and generalized to a wider class of Tolman-Bondi models. The strengths of the naked singularities are assessed in terms of limiting focusing conditions.
