This means that the interior black hole lorfntzian can contain a mix of particles that fell in from either universe and thus an observer who fell in from one universe might be able to see light that fell in from the other oneand likewise particles from the interior white hole region can escape into either universe.

These wormholes use a lot of negative mass to support them and not fall apart. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. The Lorentzan minisuperspace formalism is used to shed light on the quantum aspects of Lorentzian wormholes, and the Wheeler-DeWitt equation for Einstein gravity on minisuperspace is solved exactly.

High Energy Physics – Theory

A piece of string passing through the wormhole cannot be smoothly moved in such a way as to lie along one of the surface paths or through another wormhole with the same end points but different route. Readers will have to have a very detailed knowledge of quantum field theory in curved spacetime to follow the discussion. There is, however, no experimental evidence for them.

All the wormholes that you see on television are Lorentzian wormholes. In any event, if you can provide the intermediate steps, wormhkles manipulations, from pages tothen all will fall into place in this chapter. Introduction History Mathematical formulation Tests.


You will read of: And another reply comes from Matt Visser, an assistant professor of physics at Washington University in St. Chronology protection conjecture Closed timelike curve Novikov self-consistency principle Self-fulfilling prophecy Quantum mechanics of time travel.

One end of the wormhole is accelerated to some significant fraction of the speed of light, perhaps with some advanced propulsion systemand then brought back to the point of origin. The author is convincing in his efforts, via his thorough analysis of causality conditions in spacetime, and the explicit constructions of wormoles time machines, which in the author’s words are a consequence of general relativity being “infested” with geometries that produce them.

Topology though, not topology ‘change’ in various guises, will be met time and again throughout the text.

Wormhole Theory (Lorentzian, Schwarzschild, Euclidean)

Have fun with this book! I view such claims as gross over enthusiasm. Get to Know Us. See and discover other items: All four regions can be seen in a spacetime diagram that uses Kruskal—Szekeres coordinates.

[] Lorentzian wormholes in Eddington-inspired Born-Infeld gravity

One person found this helpful. These results are pretty restrictive in limiting the existence of certain topology changes, but as the author remarks, one can abandon the idea of spacetime being everywhere-Lorentzian if one gives up the strong equivalence principle, an idea he clearly is not comfortable with.

If the wormhole were not much larger than this, then not only would it be useless for transporting spaceships, but quantum gravity would be needed to describe the hole. Grandfather paradox Causal loop. Third Edition Dover Books on Mathematics. Customers who bought this item also bought.

Wormholes have been defined both geometrically and topologically. There are portions which can be understood by an advanced undergraduate student; however, it seems to me to best serve as a pointer to possibilities in “research.


They seem according to my research, something that isn’t for people to be travelling through. In a stretched rubber band, for example, the lorentziab is 10 14or million million times, greater than the tension.

Journal of Geometry and Physics. According to the optical Raychaudhuri’s theoremthis requires a violation of the averaged null energy condition. It is my opinion that our systems are balanced by a wormhole because I am doing research on that very thing.

Lorentzian wormholes: From Einstein to Hawking – INSPIRE-HEP

The author–happily–injects some humor and his own “opinions” into the exposition. The BBC has a documentary in the Horizon series: Such an interaction prevents the formation of a gravitational singularity. According to current theories on the nature of wormholes, construction of a traversable wormhole would require the existence of a substance with negative energy, often referred to as ” exotic matter “.

However, a light beam traveling through the same wormhole would of course beat the traveler. Wormholes are consistent lorentziah the general theory of relativitybut whether wormholes actually exist remains to be seen.

An excellent and more concise review. Views Read Edit View history. Journal of Mathematical Physics. Co-Winner of First Prize Essay, Gravity Research Foundation, “Gravity’s Universality,” “The question we will like to ask and answer in here is whether all the consequences of this universal character of gravity have already been fully explored. The possibility of communication between parallel universes has been dubbed interuniversal travel.
