Abstract / Description:This paper addresses strong cosmic censorship for spacetimes with self-gravitating collisionless matter, evolving from surface-symmetric compact initial data. The global dynamics exhibit qualitatively different features according to the sign of the curvature $k$ of the symmetric surfaces and the cosmological constant $\Lambda$. With a suitable formulation, the question of strong cosmic censorship is settled in the affirmative if $\Lambda=0$ or $k\le0$, $\Lambda>0$. In the case $\Lambda>0$, $k=1$, we give a detailed geometric characterization of possible "boundary" components of spacetime; the remaining obstruction to showing strong cosmic censorship in this case has to do with the possible formation of extremal Schwarzschild-de Sitter-type black holes. In the special case that the initial symmetric surfaces are all expanding, strong cosmic censorship is shown in the past for all $k,\Lambda$. Finally, our results also lead to a geometric characterization of the future boundary of black hole interiors for the collapse of asymptotically flat data: in particular, in the case of small perturbations of Schwarzschild data, it is shown that these solutions do not exhibit Cauchy horizons emanating from $i^+$ with strictly positive limiting area radius.
