Spacetime decay of cones at strong coupling.

Gregory, R. and Harvey, J. A. (2003) 'Spacetime decay of cones at strong coupling.', Classical and quantum gravity., 20 (19). L231-L237.


We study time-dependent solutions in dilaton gravity which correspond to the decay of conical spacetimes. In string theory this can be interpreted as a strong coupling limit of the decay of a non-supersymmetric orbifold spacetime with localized tachyons.
