Journal of Nonlinear Phenomena in Complex Systems. The author does consider the role of quantum tunneling in changing spacetime topology, but concludes that it lorentziah not a meaningful question.

If Lorentzian wormholes do exist, then it seems classically to be relatively easy to turn them into time machines. Such an interaction prevents the formation of a gravitational singularity. As the wormhole neck is of finite size, we would not expect caustics to develop, at least within the vicinity of the neck.

But science fiction is not the only realm where these concepts thrive.

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

If they exist at all they need large amounts of negative mass to hold them open and stop them from collapsing. A good popular level description of Lorentzian wormholes can be found in the book Black Holes and Time Warps: Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. A Schwarzschild wormhole can be thought of a one-way wormhole, you go through, you don’t come back.

Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. These wormholes are shown to violate the weak, strong, and dominant energy conditions, implying the existence of negative energy density near the throat of the wormhole. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.


A very interesting, and critical discussion is given of topology changes of spacetime via quantum fluctuations. Ellis specifically rejected referring to the scalar field as ‘exotic’ because of the antiorthodox coupling, finding arguments for doing so unpersuasive.

Would you like to tell us about a lower price? He also addresses the problems that arise in the actual construction of these time machines, such as the possibility of a non-Hausdorff topology, the problem of unique histories Novikov conjecturethe breakdown of unitarity in the quantum realm, and the Hawking chronology protection conjecture.

In fiction, wormholes have also served as a method for time travel. The Science of Interstellar. Alternatively, another way is to take one entrance of the wormhole and move it to within the gravitational field of an object that has higher gravity than the other entrance, and then return it to a position near the other entrance.

The last part of the book is more of a send off to the reader and an encouragement for further reading on the issues in the book A list of research problems in given for the ambitious and curious reader. Some Thoughts on Energy Conditions and Wormholes.

Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems. Quantum effects such as the Casimir effect cannot violate the averaged null energy condition in any neighborhood of space with zero curvature, [33] wormholee calculations in semiclassical gravity suggest that quantum effects may be able to violate this condition in curved spacetime.

The worhmoles Stockum, Godel, Kerr, and Gott tiem machines are discussed in detail, and the author shows lorenhzian how to construct time machines via wormholes.

And, that is good! How I understand it according to Miamiif you pushed something with normal mass, it moves away but negative mass, the object would come to you. But remember, the show is just entertainment, so don’t try to extract detailed physics from DS9; at best it will give you a vague general idea of what is going on.


Finally, “a rule of thumb seems to be that closed timelike curves are associated with sufficiently rapid rotation. Write a customer review.

High Energy Physics – Theory

And, before assailing any of this material, understand the formalism of “WKB-approximation. Now imagine that the ant instead crawls through a wormhole in the apple.

In this way it would be much easier to traverse the distance since the two points are now touching. More precisely it is a transcendental bijection of the spacetime continuum, an asymptotic projection of the Calabi—Yau manifold manifesting itself in Anti-de Sitter space.

The book is a six-part construction: However, he does devote a brief paragraph to the consideration of an energy-dependent effective topology which is the one of relevance to physics. The author is convincing in his efforts, via his thorough analysis of causality conditions in spacetime, and the explicit constructions of simple time machines, which in the author’s words are a consequence of general relativity being “infested” with geometries that produce them.

A Wormhole is a theorized method of connecting to locations in space, either same galaxy or different galaxies There are different types of Wormholes but Lorentzian Wormholes are the ones that most people are familiar with.

It’s lorentzain and unique textbook in its field of general relativity. Their ideas are reviewed in detail, and the author shows that viewing elementary particles as they did predicts they have internal structure, contrary to lorentziwn. The author gives one example of this, but this idea has far-reaching consequences: The only material that can be used to stabilize them against pinching off is material having negative energy density, at least in some reference frame.
