In science:

In order to get some insights into this sub ject, one possible way is to consider the experimental information on the decays of particles which move at high velocities in the lab system.
Possible test of local Lorentz invariance from $\tau$ decays
Clearly, the boundary rb of the star gets trapped first, and the apparent horizon moves inwards, the center being the last point to get trapped.
The final fate of spherical inhomogeneous dust collapse II: Initial data and causal structure of singularity
Note that unlike in the Oppenheimer-Snyder model, the center gets trapped first, and the trapped region moves out towards the boundary of the star.
The final fate of spherical inhomogeneous dust collapse II: Initial data and causal structure of singularity
This means some point other than the center or the boundary is the first one to get trapped, and as time progresses, the trapped region moves outwards as well as inwards.
The final fate of spherical inhomogeneous dust collapse II: Initial data and causal structure of singularity
For ξ < −2 the center is the first point to get trapped, whereas for ξ > −2 some surface in the interior of the star is the first one to get trapped, and the trapped region moves both inwards and outwards.
The final fate of spherical inhomogeneous dust collapse II: Initial data and causal structure of singularity
Until the balls get close together the particles that form them all propagate independently: a single 1 in one corner of a block moves to the opposite corner.

Having in hands the main corrections that non-extensive quantal distribution functions provide, we move onwards to get the final bound upon q .

And this move is equivalent to the last condition: Denote a (n,n)-tangle by P , the tangle we get if we close the last strand of P by P ′ , and the one we get if we close the first strand by ′P .

In particular the interface will always get pinned by rare strong local defects if the maximum distorsion |ui − uj | allowed in a local move is fixed and if the random force is drawn from a continuous distribution, e.g., a Gaussian as used in field-theoretical calculations.
