Abstract

It has been conjectured that the gravitational collapse of sufficiently prolate vacuum axisymmetric gravitational waves (Brill waves) may violate cosmic censorship. Improving on earlier work by Garfinkle and Duncan, I present a numerical evolution of such a prolate initial data set that does form an apparent horizon. Related advances in the construction of axisymmetric constrained evolution schemes are also discussed.
