The C-metric as a colliding plane wave space-time
preprintposted on 23.01.2007, 11:11 by Jerry Griffiths, R.G. Halburd
It is explicitly shown that part of the C-metric space-time inside the black hole horizon may be interpreted as the interaction region of two colliding plane waves with aligned linear polarization, provided the rotational coordinate is replaced by a linear one. This is a one-parameter generalization of the degenerate Ferrari– Ibanez solution in which the focussing singularity is a Cauchy horizon rather than a curvature singularity.
