In recent years there has been a growing interest in the field of Casimir wormhole. In classical general relativity (GR), it is known that the null energy condition (NEC) has to be violated to have a wormhole to be stable. The Casimir effect is an experimentally verified effect that is caused due to the vacuum field fluctuations in quantum field theory. Since the Casimir effect provides the negative energy density, thus this act as an ideal candidate for the exotic matter needed for the… 



Traversable Wormhole Geometries in f(Q) Gravity

The current interests in the universe motivate us to go beyond Einstein's General theory of relativity. One of the interesting proposals comes from a new class of teleparallel gravity named symmetric

Wormhole geometries in f(Q) gravity and the energy conditions

Following the recent theory of f(Q) gravity, we continue to investigate the possible existence of wormhole geometries, where Q is the non-metricity scalar. Recently, the non-metricity scalar and the

Static spherical wormhole models in f (R, T) gravity

Abstract.This paper explores the possibility of the existence of wormhole geometries coupled with relativistic matter configurations by taking a particular model of $ f(R,T)$f(R,T) gravity (where T

Wormholes in spacetime and their use for interstellar travel: A tool for teaching general relativity

Rapid interstellar travel by means of spacetime wormholes is described in a way that is useful for teaching elementary general relativity. The description touches base with Carl Sagan’s novel

This work considers Casimir energy as a source to see if and which kind of traversable wormhole can be produced, and examines also the consequences of quantum weak energy conditions on the traversability of the wormhole.

Deflection of light by black holes and massless wormholes in massive gravity

Weak gravitational lensing by black holes and wormholes in the context of massive gravity (Bebronne and Tinyakov, JHEP 0904:100, 2009) theory is studied. The particular solution examined is
