Black holes are predicted by general relativity. It is a mathematical challenge to describe the formation of black holes in gravitational collapse in general relativity. In this course, we will discuss the classical result of Oppenheimer and Snyder on the formation of black holes in spherically symmetric gravitational collapse, and the black hole formation theorem of spherically symmetric self-gravitating massless scalar field by Christodoulou.
