In this paper we will detail an approach to generate metrics and matter models on end-periodic manifolds, which are used extensively in the study of the exotic smooth structures of R. We will present three distinct examples, discuss their associated matter models by solving the Einstein equations, and determine their physical viability by examining the energy conditions. We will also compare one of the models directly with existing models of matter distributions in extragalactic systems, to…

On the geometrization of matter by exotic smoothness
In this paper we discuss the question how matter may emerge from space. For that purpose we consider the smoothness structure of spacetime as underlying structure for a geometrical model of matter.
Exotic Smoothness in Four Dimensions and Euclidean Quantum Gravity
In this paper we calculate the effect of the inclusion of exotic smooth structures on typical observables in Euclidean quantum gravity. We do this in the semiclassical regime for several
How to include fermions into general relativity by exotic smoothness
The purpose of this paper is two-fold. At first we will discuss the generation of source terms in the Einstein–Hilbert action by using (topologically complicated) compact 3-manifolds. There is a
Using Cosmic Strings to Relate Local Geometry to Spatial Topology
In this paper we will discuss how cosmic strings can be used to bridge the gap between the local geometry of our spacetime model and the global topology. The primary tool is the theory of foliations
Energy conditions in arbitrary dimensions
Energy conditions for matter fields are comprehensively investigated in arbitrary $n(\ge 3)$ dimensions without specifying future and past directions locally. We classify an energy–momentum tensor
Generation of Source Terms in General Relativity by differential structures
In this paper the relation between the choice of a differential structure and a smooth connection in the tangential bundle is discussed. In the case of four dimensions we obtain a correction of the
Monopoles and four-manifolds
Recent developments in the understanding of $N=2$ supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory in four dimensions suggest a new point of view about Donaldson theory of four manifolds: instead of defining
Local conformal symmetry in black holes, standard model, and quantum gravity
The black hole information problem and the firewall problem can be addressed by assuming an extra local symmetry: conformal invariance. It must be an exact symmetry, spontaneously broken by the
Exotic smoothness and quantum gravity
Since the first work on exotic smoothness in physics, it was folklore to assume a direct influence of exotic smoothness to quantum gravity. Thus, the negative result of Duston (2009 arXiv:0911.4068)
Localized exotic smoothness
Gompf's end-sum techniques are used to establish the existence of an infinity of non-diffeomorphic manifolds, all having the same trivial topology, but for which the exotic differentiable structure
