dc.description.abstractIn this thesis, I first review the fundamentals of Einstein's theory of gravity in four-dimensional spacetimes, and then develop the general formulas of thin shells in this theory. Applying these formulas to spherically symmetric thin shells, I study the gravitational collapse of dust clouds in the background of dark energy. To solve the relevant equations, I develop a computer program, and investigate four representative cases, in which one is without dark energy and the others are with. I find that in all the four cases black holes can be formed from the gravitational collapse of the dust cloud.en
