Kinematics of discretely self-similar spherically symmetric spacetimes

Kinematics of discretely self-similar spherically symmetric spacetimes
Kinematics of discretely self-similar spherically symmetric spacetimes
We summarize the consequences of the twin assumptions of (discrete) self-similarity and spherical symmetry for the global structure of a spacetime. All such spacetimes can be constructed from two building blocks: the "fan" and "splash." Each building block contains one radial null geodesic that is invariant under the self-similarity (self-similarity horizon).

Abstract

We summarize the consequences of the twin assumptions of (discrete) self-similarity and spherical symmetry for the global structure of a spacetime. All such spacetimes can be constructed from two building blocks: the "fan" and "splash." Each building block contains one radial null geodesic that is invariant under the self-similarity (self-similarity horizon).
