Abstract: In this paper we develop the mathematical formalism needed to study even-parity perturbations of spherical stellar collapse models, with the goal of calculating the gravitational radiation emitted during a stellar collapse to a black hole or a type-I1 supernova explosion. We concentrate on developing a set of gauge-invariant perturbation quantities, both inside the star and outside in the vacuum surrounding the star, their evolution equations, and equations which match the two sets of perturbation quantities …
