Title: Dynamics of colliding branes and black brane production

Abstract

We study the dynamics of colliding domain walls including self-gravity. The initial data is set up by applying a Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield (BPS) domain wall in five-dimensional supergravity, and we evolve the system determining the final outcome of collisions. After a collision, a spacelike curvature singularity covered by a horizon is formed in the bulk, resulting in a black brane with trapped domain walls. This is a generic consequence of collisions, except for nonrelativistic weak field cases, in which the walls pass through one another or multiple bounces take place without singularity formation. These results show that incorporating the self-gravity drastically changes a naive picture of colliding branes.
