I have been studying off-late of late about formation of naked singularities in certain collapse scenarios in Einstein's theory. It seems to me that the canonical paper to read about how such a formation is established is the 1984 paper by Christodoulou in Communications in Mathematical Physics. ( http://www.ams.org/mathscinet-getitem?mr=742192 )
I was wondering if there is a reference which gives a more modern rewriting of the proof in that paper which say sort of highlights the generic technique of the proof which the reader can take away from there for other scenarios.
Somehow even the most recent books on Einstein's theory like the otherwise brilliant book by Choquet-Bruhat also doesn't dwell on techniques of testing in a collapse scenario whether the curvature singularity is naked or not.
I haven't seen till now any generic method or algorithm for testing this.
It would be great if someone can give me some references/explanations along these lines.
