The Schwarzschild solution to the matter free, spherically symmetric Einstein equations has one free parameter, the mass. But the mass can be of any sign. What is the meaning of the negative mass solutions? The answer to this question for the case of a pure Schwarzschild negative mass black solution is still elusive, however, in this essay, we will consider negative mass solutions within a Schwarzschild–de Sitter geometry. We show that there exist reasonable configurations of matter, bubbles of… Expand
On the Possibility and Consequences of Negative Mass
We investigate the possibility and consequences of the existence of particles having negative relativistic masses, and show that their existence implies the existence of faster- than-light particlesExpand
The Soul as a Negative Mass
The main objective of this article is to derive new equation of motion for Faster-Than– Light-Particles, named Negative Mass like the Soul. It is assumed that the Soul as a negative mass hasExpand
On the Dirac Void, Pauli Exclusion Principle & the Preponderance of Matter over Antimatter
In 1928, Paul Dirac derived the famous Dirac equation. We show here that the Dirac equation can explain the stability of the Dirac Void , i.e. , the empty Dirac Sea without the need of the PauliExpand
$$(2+1)$$(2+1)-Dimensional charged black holes with scalar hair in Einstein–Power–Maxwell Theory
In $$(2+1)$$(2+1)-dimensional AdS spacetime, we obtain new exact black hole solutions, including two different models (power parameter $$k=1$$k=1 and $$k\ne 1$$k≠1), in the Einstein–Power–MaxwellExpand
Quantum Mechanics Interpretation on Planck Scale
In the last years, many different primeval quantization theories on the Planck scale have been developed. Their goal is to provide a vacuum model able to ground the research beyond the StandardExpand
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. BothExpand
Application of exact solution of complex morse potential to investigate physical systems with complex and negative masses
The interest in the study of physical systems characterized by negative and effective negative masses and their behaviour has been a subject of investigation by several researchers. The focus of theExpand
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 ...
Idea of multi cohesive areas - foundation, current status and perspective
Abstract The idea of multi cohesive areas is a new, theoretical model of quantum particle mass. This model contains a dark matter sector. Moreover, it can explain the current experimental data onExpand
Negative mass
Some physical aspects of negative mass are examined. Several unusual properties, such as the ability of negative mass to penetrate any armor, are analyzed. Other surprising effects include theExpand


On the proof of the positive mass conjecture in general relativity
LetM be a space-time whose local mass density is non-negative everywhere. Then we prove that the total mass ofM as viewed from spatial infinity (the ADM mass) must be positive unlessM is the flatExpand
Proof of the positive mass theorem. II
The positive mass theorem states that for a nontrivial isolated physical system, the total energy, which includes contributions from both matter and gravitation is positive. This assertion wasExpand
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. Expand
Inflationary universe: A possible solution to the horizon and flatness problems
The standard model of hot big-bang cosmology requires initial conditions which are problematic in two ways: (1) The early universe is assumed to be highly homogeneous, in spite of the fact thatExpand
A new proof of the positive energy theorem
A new proof is given of the positive energy theorem of classical general relativity. Also, a new proof is given that there are no asymptotically Euclidean gravitational instantons. (These theoremsExpand
Techniques of Differential Topology in Relativity
Acquaints the specialist in relativity theory with some global techniques for the treatment of space-times and will provide the pure mathematician with a way into the subject of general relativity.
