Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am currently doing a course in GR and have just gone over a proof of the focusing theorem..

now this relied on the fact that geodesics do not cross. But I could not see clearly the contradiction if geodesics did happen to cross?

any help would be greatly appreciated.
