Gravitational collapse to black holes and more

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Are black holes the only possible end state of complete gravitational collapse? Or is there any alternative outcome, either within general relativity or coming from some quantum theory of gravity? If so, could the existence of such exotic objects be in principle inferred from observations?
