Title: Numeric Simulation Of Relativistic Stellar Core Collapse And The Formation Of Reissner-nordström Black Holes
Author: Ghezzi C.R.

Abstract: The time evolution of a set of 22M unstable charged stars that collapse is computed integrating the Einstein-Maxwell equations. The model simulates the collapse of a spherical star that had exhausted its nuclear fuel and has or acquires a net electric charge in its core while collapsing. When the charge-to-mass ratio is Q/GM≥1, the star does not collapse but spreads. On the other hand, a different physical behavior is observed with a charge-to-mass ratio of 1>Q/GM>0.1. In this case, the collapsing matter forms a bubble enclosing a lower density core. We discuss an immediate astrophysical consequence of these results that is a more efficient neutrino trapping during the stellar collapse and an alternative mechanism for powerful supernova explosions. The outer space-time of the star is the Reissner-Nordström solution that matches smoothly with our interior numerical solution; thus the collapsing models form Reissner-Nordström black holes. © 2007 The American Physical Society.
