We study the possibility of the existence of negative mass bubbles within a de Sitter space-time background with matter content corresponding to a perfect fluid. It is shown that there exist configurations of the perfect fluid, that everywhere satisfy the dominant energy condition, the Einstein equations and the equations of hydrostatic equilibrium, however asymptotically approach the exact solution of Schwarzschid-de Sitter space-time with a negative mass.

Stable, Thin Wall, Negative Mass Bubbles in de Sitter Space-Time
Negative mass makes perfect physical sense as long as the dominant energy condition is satisfied by the corresponding energy-momentum tensor. Heretofore, only {\it configurations} of negative mass
Negative Mass Black Holes in de-Sitter Space
We show that asymptotically de Sitter black holes of negative mass can exist in Lovelock gravity. Such black holes have horizon geometries with non-constant curvature and are known as Exotic Black
Black hole formation by incoming electromagnetic radiation
I revisit a known solution of the Einstein field equations to show that it describes the formation of non-spherical black holes by the collapse of pure electromagnetic monochromatic radiation. Both
Cosmological structure formation with negative mass
We construct a family of models with negative gravitational mass in the context of Newtonian gravity. We focus, in particular, on a model that reproduces the features of the so-called Dirac-Milne
On negative mass in inflating universes1
We consider negative mass solutions in inflating universes. These universes correspond to asymptotically de Sitter space–times. We show that negative mass makes perfect physical sense and could be ...
A unifying theory of dark energy and dark matter: Negative masses and matter creation within a modified ΛCDM framework
Dark energy and dark matter constitute 95% of the observable Universe. Yet the physical nature of these two phenomena remains a mystery. Einstein suggested a long-forgotten solution: gravitationally
Quartic time-dependent oscillatons
In this paper, we will study some properties of oscillaton, spherically symmetric object made of a real time-dependent scalar field, Using a self- interaction quartic scalar potential instead of a
Quantum effects in topological and Schwarzschild de Sitter brane: Aspects of torsion on $(D\!{\bar D})_4$-brane
We investigate an effective torsion curvature in a second-order formalism underlying a two-form world-volume dynamics in a D5-brane. In particular, we consider the two form in presence of a
Gravity, antimatter and the Dirac-Milne universe
We review the main arguments against antigravity, a different acceleration of antimatter relative to matter in a gravitational field, discussing and challenging Morrison’s, Good’s and Schiff’s


Gravitation and cosmology with York time
[Shortened abstract:] In this thesis we investigate a solution to the `problem of time' in canonical quantum gravity by splitting spacetime into surfaces of constant mean curvature parameterised by
The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time
The theory of the causal structure of a general space-time is developed, and is used to study black holes and to prove a number of theorems establishing the inevitability of singualarities under certain conditions.
