Title: Null limits of the C-metric
Authors: Podolsky, J.
Griffiths, J.B.
Keywords: C-metric
snapping cosmic string
impulsive spherical wave
Issue Date: 2000
Abstract: The C-metric is usually understood as describing two black holes which accelerate in opposite directions under the action of some conical singularity. Here, we examine all the solutions of this type which represent accelerating sources and investigate the null limit in which the accelerations become unbounded. We show that the resulting space-times represent spherical impulsive gravitational waves generated by snapping or expanding cosmic strings.
