2D naked singularity in general relativity

J.M. García-Islas


In the physical sense it is very helpful to understand in simple terms what naked singularities are
and the properties they may have. We present a novel example of a 2-dimensional space-time naked singularity. The solution
has a gravity singularity and no-horizon. This example is only a toy model and as such its motivation must be considered as mathematical only.
