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

I was wondering if it is correct to say that a vanishing metric determinant is a necessary (but probably not sufficient) condition for a curvature singularity to exist at some point(s), or is one forced to construct the full Kretschmann scalar?

Cheers!
