This means that the interior black hole region 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.

[] Stable Lorentzian Wormholes in Dilatonic Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet Theory

Einstein’s Outrageous Legacy by Kip. Journal of Geometry and Physics. Have fun with this book!

Retrieved from ” https: Wormholes are solutions to the Einstein field equations for gravity that act as “tunnels,” connecting points in space-time in such a way that the trip between the points through the wormhole could take much less time than the trip through normal space.

Chronology protection conjecture Closed timelike curve Novikov self-consistency principle Self-fulfilling prophecy Quantum mechanics of time travel. Wormholes are hypothetical entities that show up in theoretical analyses of Einstein’s theory of gravity general relativity.

If you are in the wormhole as you travel through, there is the strong possibility you would become trapped inside.

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. AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally.

The BBC has a documentary in the Horizon series: Lorentzian traversable wormholes would allow travel in both directions from one part of the universe to another part of that same universe very quickly or would allow travel from one universe to another. The first type of wormhole solution discovered was the Schwarzschild wormhole[7] which would be present in the Schwarzschild metric describing an eternal black holebut it was found that it would collapse too quickly for anything to cross from one end to the other.


This possibility is the focus of most current theoretical research involving wormholes. Explore the Home Gift Guide. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Lorentzzian other two are Nathan Rosen and Boris Podolsky. Finally, “a rule of thumb seems to be that closed timelike curves are associated with sufficiently rapid rotation.

General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology

The reader will need a wormholew background in general relativity and quantum field theory to really appreciate the book, but after reading it will obtain a solid understanding of what might be calle, in the wormuoles of the author, “non-boring” physics.

Wormholes can exist within the classical black hole solutions of the Einstein equations. What is a Schwarzschild Wormhole? They exist because of Einsteins equations. The drainhole is a solution lorebtzian of Einstein’s field equations for a vacuum space-time, modified by inclusion of a scalar field minimally coupled to the Ricci tensor with antiorthodox polarity negative instead of positive.

Recommanded for all who are interested in up-to-date stage of traversable wormhole studies. Get to Know Us. He loerntzian in detail the result that the ANEC condition can be violated by scale anomalies. Thorne Norton, New York, In terms of the theoretical physics of wormholes, however, there is no particular reason why the distance must be shorter; the wormhole might actually be the longer route analogous to a long, complicated, twisting hole that a worm might leave in an apple, where the entrance and exit mouths might be quite close loretzian each other on the surface.

The role of wormhole physics in developing a quantum theory of gravity, via the quantization of weak field gravity and the subsequent appearance of wormho,es is treated also. Wormhole geometries are inherently unstable. 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 loentzian one gives up the strong equivalence principle, an idea he clearly is not comfortable with.

High Energy Physics – Theory

In David Deutsch showed that quantum theory is fully consistent in the sense that the so-called density matrix can be made free of discontinuities in spacetimes with closed timelike curves.

If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? InMorris, Thorne and Yurtsever worked out how to convert a wormhole traversing space into one traversing time by accelerating one of its two mouths.

If two points are connected wrmholes a wormhole whose length is shorter than the distance between them outside the wormhole, the time taken to traverse it could be less than the time it would take a light beam to make the journey if it took a path loretzian the space outside the wormhole. Wrong, fold the paper over and line up the two holes. A wormhole could wormoles extremely long distances lorentzizn as a billion light years or more, short distances such as a few metersdifferent universesor different points in time.

Einstein said that to create a wormhole, we would need the power of an exploding star. See and discover other items:
