The existence of Newtonian dust caustics

Swatton, D.J.R. and Clarke, C.J.S. (1998) The existence of Newtonian dust caustics Classical and Quantum Gravity, 15, (9), pp. 2891-2899. (doi:10.1088/0264-9381/15/9/030).

Record type: Article


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.
