Abstract

A well posed initial value problem for the scalar wave equation (The existence and uniqueness of an H1 solution) provides a concept of hyperbolicity for many space-times with weak singularities which violate cosmic censorship. A discussion of the extent to which the conical singularity, which describes a thin cosmic string, is hyperbolic in this sense is presented.
