Physics of the interior of a spherical, charged black hole with a scalar field
Abstract
We analyze the physics of nonlinear gravitational processes inside a spherical charged black hole perturbed by a selfgravitating massless scalar field. For this purpose we created an appropriate numerical code. Throughout the paper, in addition to investigation of the properties of the mathematical singularities where some curvature scalars are equal to infinity, we analyze the properties of the physical singularities where the Kretschmann curvature scalar is equal to the Planckian value. Using a homogeneous approximation we analyze the properties of the spacetime near a spacelike singularity in spacetimes influenced by different matter contents, namely, a scalar field, pressureless dust and matter with ultrarelativistic isotropic pressure. We also carry out full nonlinear analyses of the scalar field and geometry of spacetime inside black holes by means of an appropriate numerical code with adaptive mesh refinement capabilities. We use this code to investigate the nonlinear effects of gravitational focusing, mass inflation, matter squeeze, and these effects dependence on the initial boundary conditions. It is demonstrated that the position of the physical singularity inside a black hole is quite different from the positions of the mathematical singularities. In the case of the existence of a strong outgoing flux of the scalar field inside a black hole it is possible to have the existence of two null singularities and one central r=0 singularity simultaneously.
