Role of Equation of State in formation of Black hole

21 Mar 2015  ·  Sarwe Sanjay ·

We study the physical process of gravitational collapse of a perfect fluid with a linear isentropic equation of state $p = k \rho, \ -1/3 < k \leq 1$. We consider a model with ansatz $v'(t,r)/v(t,r) = \xi'(r)$ that give rise to a family of solutions to Einstein equations with equation of state... The solution so obtained lead to homogeneous collapse that evolves from a regular initial data and the positivity of energy conditions. The collapse terminates in the formation of black hole. We show that as the parameter $k \rightarrow 1$, the formation of black hole gets accelerated in time, revealing the significance of equation of state in black hole formation. read more
