Causally pathological space-times are physically relevant.

Hubeny, Veronika E. and Rangamani, Mukund and Ross, Simon F. (2005) 'Causally pathological space-times are physically relevant.', International journal of modern physics D., 14 (12). pp. 2227-2232.


We argue that in the context of string theory, the usual restriction to globally hyperbolic space–times should be considerably relaxed. We exhibit an example of a space–time which only satisfies the causal condition, and so is arbitrarily close to admitting closed causal curves, but which has a well-behaved dual description, free of paradoxes.
