Theory of relativity and superluminal speeds. IV. The catastrophe of the Schwarzschild field and superluminal expansion of extragalactic radio sources.
Abstract
It is possible that the Finsler spacetime F(x, y) may be endowed with a catastrophic nature. In particular, the horizon of the field of the general relativity is just a catastrophic set. If so, a particle with the superluminal speeds could be projected near the horizon of these fields, and the particle will move on the spacelike curves. It is very interesting that, in the Schwarzschild fields, the theoretical calculation as the spacelike curves should be in agreement with the data of the superluminal expansion of extragalactic radio sources observed year after year.
