Black Holes: The Inside Story of Gravitational Collapse- This talk will take place at a different time and place than our usual seminars: Science and Engineering Building, ESB 044, 10:30am.
What does the interior of a black hole look like? Beyond the astrophysical motivation, it turns out that this question is at the heart of profound conjectures in General Relativity. One of them is the celebrated Penrose’s Strong Cosmic Censorship supporting the deterministic character of the classical theory of gravitation.
I will present recent advances on this topic based on modern mathematical techniques and describe outstanding problems.
