Solitons in space-time capable of transporting time-like observers at superluminal speeds have long been tied to violations of the weak, strong, and dominant energy conditions of general relativity. The negative-energy sources required for these solitons must be created through energy-intensive uncertainty principle processes as no such classical source is known in particle physics. This paper overcomes this barrier by constructing a class of soliton solutions that are capable of superluminal… 
Generic warp drives violate the null energy condition
Three 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, to minimize
Positive Energy Driven CTCs In ADM 3+1 Space – Time of Unprotected Chronology
Chronology unprotected mechanisms are considered with a very low gravitational polarization to make the wormhole traversal with positive energy density everywhere. No need of exotic matter has been
ADM mass in warp drive spacetimes
: What happens when one puts a finite-mass payload into a warp bubble? This seemingly innocent question forces one to carefully formalize exactly what one means by a warp bubble, exactly what one
The Lorentz factor in a reverse coordinate system
. In the present study, we have derived the Lorentz factor using a coordinate system with antiparallel X-axes. Using a thought experiment, common in relativistic literature, we have used the case of
Obstacles from interstellar matter and distortion for warp drive travel
Abstract. We investigate obstacles of superluminal “warp drive” travels from interactions with interstellar matter and from curvature effects. The effect of collision of interstellar dust particles
On the total energy conservation of the Alcubierre spacetime
In this article, we consider Alcubierre spacetime. This spacetime is an exact solution to Einstein equations and describes a gravitational bubble propagating with arbitrary global velocity. This
Field equations for incompressible non-viscous fluids using artificial intelligence
New field equations for incompressible non-viscous fluids, which can be treated similarly to Maxwell’s electromagnetic equations based on artificial intelligence algorithms are introduced.
A Postscript Technical Report on Gravitational Driving
The aim of this postscript is to broaden the understanding of the model described in reference [8], as well as the mathematical approach to the theory previously discussed by examining the junction
Hyper-Fast Positive Energy Warp Drives
Solitons in space–time capable of transporting time-like observers at superluminal speeds have long been tied to violations of the weak, strong, and dominant energy conditions of general relativity.
Wakefield -The Real Mechanism Overcoming the Warp Barrier in the Forvator of Superluminal Gravitational Waves
Today, space researchers are faced with the question of interstellar and intergalactic flights, for the implementation of which warp engines are needed, which will actually allow pilots to move

Fundamental limitations on 'warp drive' spacetimes
'Warp drive' spacetimes are useful as 'gedanken-experiments' that force us to confront the foundations of general relativity, and among other things, to precisely formulate the notion of
The Inability of the White-Juday Warp Field Interferometer to Spectrally Resolve Spacetime Distortions
This paper contends that the spacetime distortions resulting from the experimentally obtainable electric field of a parallel plate capacitor configuration cannot be detected by the White-Juday Warp
Hyperfast travel in general relativity
The problem is discussed of whether a traveler can reach a remote object and return sooner than a photon would when taking into account that the traveler can partly control the geometry of his world.
New Lower Bounds for Warp Drive Energy
The introduction of the warp drive metric by Alcubierre1 has aroused great interest over the past few years. Using an uncertainty-type principle, Ford and Pfenning2 proved that the warp drive
Weak Energy Condition Violation and Superluminal Travel
Recent solutions to the Einstein Field Equations involving negative energy densities, i.e., matter violating the weak-energy-condition, have been obtained, namely traversable wormholes, the
Energy condition respecting warp drives: the role of spin in Einstein–Cartan theory
In this paper we study the so called "warp drive" spacetimes within the $U_{4}$ Riemann-Cartan manifolds of Einstein-Cartan theory. Specifically, the role that spin may play with respect to energy
Warp Field Mechanics 101
This paper will begin with a short review of the Alcubierre warp drive metric and describes how the phenomenon might work based on the original paper. The canonical form of the metric was developed
