Acoustic black holes: horizons, ergospheres and Hawking radiation

- M. Visser
- Physics
- 1 December 1997

It is a deceptively simple question to ask how acoustic disturbances propagate in a non-homogeneous flowing fluid. Subject to suitable restrictions, this question can be answered by invoking the… Expand

Analogue Gravity

- C. Barceló, S. Liberati, M. Visser
- Medicine
- Living reviews in relativity
- 11 May 2011

Analogue gravity is a research programme which investigates analogues of general relativistic gravitational fields within other physical systems, typically but not exclusively condensed matter… Expand

Black holes in general relativity

- M. Visser
- Physics
- 28 January 2009

What is going on (as of August 2008) at the interface between theoretical general relativity, string-inspired models, and observational astrophysics? Quite a lot. In this mini-survey I will make a… Expand

Analogue Gravity

- C. Barceló, S. Liberati, M. Visser
- Medicine, Physics
- Living reviews in relativity
- 13 May 2005

Analogue models of (and for) gravity have a long and distinguished history dating back to the earliest years of general relativity. In this review article we will discuss the history, aims, results,… Expand

Traversable wormholes with arbitrarily small energy condition violations.

- M. Visser, Sayan Kar, N. Dadhich
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 1 January 2003

Traversable wormholes necessarily require violations of the averaged null energy condition, this being the definition of "exotic matter." However, the theorems which guarantee the energy condition… Expand

Analogue gravity from Bose-Einstein condensates

- Carlos Barcelo Stefano Liberati, M. Visser
- Physics
- 7 November 2000

We analyse prospects for the use of Bose–Einstein condensates as condensedmatter systems suitable for generating a generic ‘effective metric’, and for mimicking kinematic aspects of general… Expand

Essential and inessential features of Hawking radiation

- M. Visser
- Physics
- 13 June 2001

There are numerous derivations of the Hawking effect available in the literature. They emphasise different features of the process, and sometimes make markedly different physical assumptions. This… Expand

Quantum gravity without Lorentz invariance

- T. Sotiriou, M. Visser, S. Weinfurtner
- Physics
- 18 May 2009

There has been a significant surge of interest in Hoyrava's model for 3+1 dimensional quantum gravity, this model being based on anisotropic scaling at a z = 3 Lifshitz point. Hoyrava's model, and… Expand
