The Role of the Electromagnetic Field in Dissipative Collapse
In this paper, we investigate the effect of charge on the collapse of a radiating, shearing sphere. The junction conditions required for the smooth matching of a general spherically symmetric spacetime (in the absence of rotation) to the exterior Vaidya-Reissner-Nordström leads to a temporal evolution equation at the boundary of the collapsing star. We are in a position to integrate these equations in the presence of charge and shear. The solutions obtained here are new and generalize recent treatments of dissipative, shearing collapse to the charged case.
