ABSTRACT Quantum singularities considered in the 3D BTZ spacetime by Pitelli and Letelier (Phys. Rev. D77: 124030, 2008) is extended to charged BTZ and 3D Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton gravity spacetimes. The occurence of naked singularities in the Einstein-Maxwell extension of the BTZ spacetime both in linear and non-linear electrodynamics as well as in the Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton gravity spacetimes are analysed with the quantum test fields obeying the Klein-Gordon and Dirac equations. We show that with the inclusion of the matter fields; the conical geometry near r=0 is removed and restricted classes of solutions are admitted for the Klein-Gordon and Dirac equations. Hence, the classical central singularity at r=0 turns out to be quantum mechanically singular for quantum particles obeying Klein-Gordon equation but nonsingular for fermions obeying Dirac equation. Explicit calculations reveal that the occurrence of the timelike naked singularities in the considered spacetimes do not violate the cosmic censorship hypothesis as far as the Dirac fields are concerned. The role of horizons that clothes the singularity in the black hole cases is replaced by repulsive potential barrier against the propagation of Dirac fields. Comment: 13 pages, 1 figure. Final version, to appear in PRD

    ABSTRACT: We analyze the persistence of curvature singularities when analyzed using quantum theory. First, quantum test particles obeying the Klein-Gordon and Chandrasekhar-Dirac equation are used to probe the classical timelike naked singularity. We show that the classical singularity is felt even by our quantum probes. Next, we use loop quantization to resolve singularity hidden beneath the horizon. The singularity is resolved in this case.

    ABSTRACT: We obtain a $2+1-$dimensional solution to gravity, coupled with nonlinear electrodynamic Lagrangian of the form of $\sqrt{\left| F_{\mu \nu}F^{\mu \nu}\right|}$. The electromagnetic field is considered with an angular component given by $F_{\mu \nu}=E_{0}\delta_{\mu}^{t}\delta_{\nu}^{\theta}$ with $E_{0}$=constant. We show that the metric coincides with the solution given by Schmidt and Singleton in PLB 721(2013)294 in $2+1-$dimensional gravity coupled with a massless, self interacting real scalar field. Finally the confining motions of massive charged as well as chargeless particles are investigated.

    ABSTRACT: The formation of a naked singularity in $f(R)$ global monopole spacetime is considered in view of quantum mechanics. Quantum test fields obeying the Klein$-$Gordon, Dirac and Maxwell equations are used to probe the classical timelike naked singularity developed at $r=0$. We prove that the spatial derivative operator of the fields fails to be essentially self-adjoint. As a result, the classical timelike naked singularity formed in $f(R)$ global monopole spacetime remains quantum mechanically singular when it is probed with quantum fields having different spin structures. Pitelli and Letelier (Phys. Rev. D 80, 104035, 2009) had shown that for quantum scalar ($spin$ $0$% ) probes the general relativistic global monopole singularity remains intact. For specific modes electromagnetic ($spin$ $1$) and Dirac field ($% spin$ $1/2$) probes, however, we show that the global monopole spacetime behaves quantum mechanically regular. The admissibility of this singularity is also incorporated within the Gubser's singularity conjecture.
