On the Possibility of Supertasks in General Relativity

Foundations of Physics 40 (3):276-288 (2010)
Malament-Hogarth spacetimes are the sort of models within general relativity that seem to allow for the possibility of supertasks. There are various ways in which these spacetimes might be considered physically problematic. Here, we examine these criticisms and investigate the prospect of escaping them
