Higher-dimensional black holes have long been considered within the context of brane worlds. Recently, it was shown that the brane-world ethos also permits the consideration of higher-dimensional wormholes. When such a wormhole, pre-existing in the bulk, impinges upon our universe, taken to be a positive-tension three-brane, it can induce the creation in our universe of a wormhole of ordinary dimensionality. The throat of this wormhole might fully constrict, pinch off, and thus birth a baby… Expand
