Higher Dimensional Wormhole Geometries with Compact Dimensions

  title={Higher Dimensional Wormhole Geometries with Compact Dimensions},
  author={Andrew DeBenedictis and Ashok Das},
This paper studies wormhole solutions to Einstein gravity with an arbitrary number of time dependent compact dimensions and a matter-vacuum boundary. A new gauge is utilized which is particularly suited for studies of the wormhole throat. The solutions possess arbitrary functions which allow for the description of infinitely many wormhole systems of this type and, at the stellar boundary, the matter field is smoothly joined to vacuum. It turns out that the classical vacuum structure differs… CONTINUE READING
