Collapse in the scalar-tensor theory of gravitation

  • G. E. Gorelik


A transformation is obtained, relating the static, spherically symmetric solutions of Heckman and Brans-Dicke. The size of the singular region is studied as a function of the parameter ω. It is shown that for ω > 0 the test particle reaches a singular surface at a finite time.
