Space—Time Singularities in Cosmology and Black Hole Evaporations
The concept of cosmic time and the conventional models of cosmic dynamics lead to occurence of space-time singularities, where physical predictability is destroyed. The implications for space-time structure and for physics in general are profound. The properties of singularities are important for an explanation of cosmological time asymetry, and in the discussion of quantum black hole evaporation processes.
