We give a detailed account of the properties of spinning Ellis wormholes, supported by a phantom field. The general set of solutions depends on three parameters, associated with the size of the throat, the rotation and the symmetry of the solutions. For symmetric wormholes the global charges possess the same values in both asymptotic regions, while this is no longer the case for non-symmetric wormholes. We present mass formulae for these wormholes, study their quadrupole moments, and discuss… 
Wormholes Immersed in Rotating Matter
Abstract We demonstrate that rotating matter sets the throat of an Ellis wormhole into rotation, allowing for wormholes which possess full reflection symmetry with respect to the two asymptotically
Symmetric and asymmetric wormholes immersed in rotating matter
We consider four-dimensional wormholes immersed in bosonic matter. While their existence is based on the presence of a phantom field, many of their interesting physical properties are bestowed upon
Spinning Wormholes in Scalar-Tensor Theory
We consider spinning generalizations of the Ellis wormhole in scalar-tensor theory. Analogous to other compact objects these wormholes can carry a non-trivial scalarization. We determine the domain
Stationary generalizations for the Bronnikov-Ellis wormhole and for the vacuum ring wormhole
We analyze possibilities to obtain a globally regular stationary generalization for the ultrastatic wormhole with a repulsive scalar field found by Bronnikov and by Ellis in 1973. The extreme
Energy conditions for a T2 wormhole at the center
Within general relativity, we determine the conditions needed for the existence of a toroidal ${T}^{2}$ wormhole. For this purpose, we employ the requirements of the positiveness of the second
Linear stability analysis of a rotating thin-shell wormhole
We cut and paste two Ba\~nados-Teitelboim-Zanelli (BTZ) spacetimes at a throat by the Darmois-Israel method to construct a rotating wormhole with a thin shell filled with a barotropic fluid. The thin
Geodesic motion around traversable wormholes supported by a massless conformally coupled scalar field
We consider a traversable wormhole solution of Einstein's gravity conformally coupled to a massless scalar field, a solution derived by Barcelo and Visser based on the JNWW spacetime. We study the
Black holes and wormholes in the Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet generalized theories of gravity
In this Ph.D. dissertation we study the emergence of black-hole and wormhole solutions in the framework of the Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet (EsGB) theory. Particularly we study a family of theories
On the shadow of rotating traversable wormholes
We revisit the shadow of rotating traversable wormholes discussing the role of the wormhole throat in the shadow formation. For certain classes of wormholes the throat serves as a potential barrier
Uniqueness theorem for static phantom wormholes in Einstein–Maxwell-dilaton theory
Abstract We prove a uniqueness theorem for completely regular traversable electrically charged wormhole solutions in the Einstein–Maxwell-dilaton gravity with a phantom scalar field and a possible
