Kruskal–Penrose Formalism for Lightlike Thin-Shell Wormholes

The original formulation of the “Einstein–Rosen bridge” in the classic paper of Einstein and Rosen (1935) is historically the first example of a static spherically-symmetric wormhole solution. It is

Einstein-Rosen "Bridge" Revisited and Lightlike Thin-Shell Wormholes

We study in some detail the properties of the mathematically correct formulation of the classical Einstein-Rosen "bridge" as proposed in the original 1935 paper, which was shown in a series of

Lightlike Braneworlds in Anti-de Sitter Bulk Space-Times

We consider five-dimensional Einstein–Maxwell–Kalb–Ramond system self-consistently coupled to a lightlike 3-brane, where the latter acts as material, charge and variable cosmological constant source.


We consider self-consistent coupling of bulk Einstein–Maxwell–Kalb–Ramond system to codimension-one charged lightlikep-brane with dynamical (variable) tension (LL-brane). The latter is described by a

Space-time compactification/decompactification transitions via lightlike branes

We consider Einstein-Maxwell-Kalb-Ramond gravity-matter system in bulk space-time interacting self-consistently with two (widely separated) codimension-one electrically charged lightlike branes. The

Asymmetric Wormholes via Electrically Charged Lightlike Branes

We consider a self‐consistent Einstein‐Maxwell‐Kalb‐Ramond system in the bulk D = 4 space‐time interacting with a variable‐tension electrically charged lightlike brane. The latter serves both as a

Space-Time Compactification, Non-Singular Black Holes, Wormholes and Braneworlds via Lightlike Branes

We describe a concise general scheme for constructing solutions of Einstein-Maxwell-Kalb-Ramond gravity-matter system in bulk space-time interacting self-consistently with one or more (widely

Point massive particle in General Relativity

It is well known that the Schwarzschild solution describes the gravitational field outside compact spherically symmetric mass distribution in General Relativity. In particular, it describes the

Gravity, Nonlinear Gauge Fields and Charge Confinement/Deconfinement

We discuss in some detail the properties of gravity (including f(R)-gravity) coupled to non-standard nonlinear gauge field system containing a square root of the usual Maxwell Lagrangian. The latter


We describe two interesting effects in wormhole physics. First, we find that a genuinely charged matter source of gravity and electromagnetism may appear electrically neutral to an external observer




Lightlike p-branes (LL-branes) with dynamical (variable) tension allow simple and elegant Polyakov-type and dual to it Nambu–Goto-like worldvolume action formulations. Here we first briefly describe

“Mass inflation” with lightlike branes

We discuss properties of a new class of p-brane models, describing intrinsically lightlike branes for any world-volume dimension, in various gravitational backgrounds of interest in the context of

Lightlike branes as natural candidates for wormhole throats

We first briefly present a consistent world‐volume Lagrangian description of lightlike p‐branes (LL‐branes) in two equivalent forms – a Polyakov‐type and a dual to it Nambu‐Goto‐type formulations.

Weyl‐invariant lightlike branes and soldering of black hole space‐times

We consider self‐consistent coupling of the recently introduced new class of Weyl‐conformally invariant lightlike branes (WILL‐branes) to D = 4 Einstein‐Maxwell system plus a D = 4 three‐index

Weyl-conformally-invariant lightlike p-brane theories : New aspects in black hole physics and Kaluza-Klein dynamics

We introduce and study in some detail the properties of a novel class of Weyl-conformally invariant p-brane theories which describe intrinsically lightlike branes for any odd world-volume dimension.

The gravitational effects associated with the radiative tail produced by a gravitational collapse with rotation are investigated. It is shown that the infinite blueshift of the tail's energy density

Exotic solutions in General Relativity: Traversable wormholes and 'warp drive' spacetimes

The General Theory of Relativity has been an extremely successful theory, with a well established experimental footing, at least for weak gravitational fields. Its predictions range from the

Morris-Thorne wormholes with a cosmological constant

First, the ideas introduced in the wormhole research field since the work of Morris and Thorne are reviewed, namely, the issues of energy conditions, wormhole construction, stability, time machines
