The Alcubierre warp drive allows a spaceship to travel at an arbitrarily large global velocity by deforming the spacetime in a bubble around the spaceship. Little is known about the interactions between massive particles and the Alcubierre warp drive, or the effects of an accelerating or decelerating warp bubble. We examine geodesics representative of the paths of null and massive particles with a range of initial velocities from $\ensuremath{-}c$ to $c$ interacting with an Alcubierre warp… Expand

Quantum tunneling and quasinormal modes in the spacetime of the Alcubierre warp drive
In a seminal paper, Alcubierre showed that Einstein’s theory of general relativity appears to allow a super-luminal motion. In the present study, we use a recent eternal-warp-drive solution found byExpand
Galaxy travel via Alcubierre's warp drive
Abstract The possibilities of interstellar flights for extraterrestrial civilizations have been considered. A superluminal motion (hypermotion) via M. Alcubierre's warp drive is considered.Expand
Conformal Gravity and the Alcubierre Warp Drive Metric
TLDR
If conformal gravity is a correct extension of general relativity, superluminal motion via an Alcubierre metric might be a realistic solution, thus allowing faster-than-light interstellar travel. Expand
Generic warp drives violate the null energy condition
Three very recent articles have claimed that it is possible to, at least in theory, either set up positive energy warp drives satisfying the weak energy condition (WEC), or at the very least, toExpand
Hypermotion due to space-time deformation
A superluminal motion (hypermotion) via M. Alcubierre’s warp drive is considered. Parameters of the warp drive have been estimated. The equations of starship geodesics have been solved. The starshipExpand
Tractor Beams, Pressor Beams and Stressor Beams in General Relativity
The metrics of general relativity generally fall into two categories: Those which are solutions of the Einstein equations for a given source energy-momentum tensor, and the “reverse engineered”Expand

Scalar triplet leptogenesis without right-handed neutrino decoupling
We discuss leptogenesis in the context of type-II seesaw in the case in which in addition to the scalar electroweak triplet decays the lepton asymmetry is also induced by right-handed neutrino decaysExpand
