Description/Abstract

We prove a rigorous existence theorem in the case of one-dimensional Newtonian gravity for a pressureless fluid, in which a caustic separates a single-fluid region from a region with three superimposed fluid flows. This is of interest both for the shell crossing singularities of general relativity and for models of galaxy formation.
