We study quasinormal modes and scattering properties via calculation of the $S$ matrix for scalar and electromagnetic fields propagating in the background of spherically symmetric and axially symmetric traversable Lorentzian wormholes of a generic shape. Such wormholes are described by the general Morris-Thorne ansatz. The properties of quasinormal ringing and scattering are shown to be determined by the behavior of the wormhole's shape function $b(r)$ and shift factor $\ensuremath{\Phi}(r… 
Revisiting a family of wormholes: geometry, matter, scalar quasinormal modes and echoes
We revisit a family of ultra-static Lorentzian wormholes which includes Ellis–Bronnikov spacetime as a special case. We first show how the required total matter stress energy (which violates the
Scalar quasinormal modes of a family of generalised Ellis--Bronnikov wormholes
We obtain the scalar quasinormal modes (QNMs) in a family of Lorentzian wormholes proposed many years ago, as a generalisation of the well--known Ellis-Bronnikov spacetime. The effective potentials
Wormholes versus black holes: quasinormal ringing at early and late times
Recently it has been argued that the phantom thin-shell wormholes matched with the Schwarzschild space-time near the Schwarzschild radius ring like Schwarzschild black holes at early times, but
Instabilities of wormholes and regular black holes supported by a phantom scalar field
We test the stability of various wormholes and black holes supported by a scalar field with a negative kinetic term. The general axial perturbations and the monopole type of polar perturbations are
General parametrization of wormhole spacetimes and its application to shadows and quasinormal modes
The general parametrization for spacetimes of spherically symmetric Lorentzian, traversable wormholes in an arbitrary metric theory of gravity is presented. The parametrization is similar in spirit
No stable wormholes in Einstein-dilaton-Gauss-Bonnet theory
In [Aneesh, S.; Bose, Sukanta; Kar, Sayan : Gravitational waves from quasinormal modes of a class of Lorentzian wormholes. PHYSICAL REVIEW D 97(12):124004] it was shown that the four-dimensional
Ringing of the regular black-hole/wormhole transition
A simple one-parameter generalization of the Schwarzschild spacetime was recently suggested by A Simpson and M Visser [2019 J. Cosmol. Astropart. Phys. JCAP02(2019)042] as a toy model describing the
Quasinormal mode spectra for odd parity perturbations in spacetimes with smeared matter sources
We have found the Quasi Normal Mode (QNM) frequencies of a class of static spherically symmetric spacetimes having a {\it {smeared}} matter distribution, parameterized by $\Theta$ - an inherent


Possibility of hyperbolic tunneling
Traversable wormholes are primarily useful as 'gedanken experiments' and as a theoretician's probe of the foundations of general relativity. In this work, we analyze the possibility of having tunnels
Trapped ghosts: a new class of wormholes
We construct examples of static, spherically symmetric wormhole solutions in general relativity with a minimally coupled scalar field ϕ whose kinetic energy is negative in a restricted region of
Fate of the first traversible wormhole : black-hole collapse or inflationary expansion
We study numerically the stability of the first Morris-Thorne traversible wormhole, shown previously by Ellis to be a solution for a massless ghost Klein-Gordon field. Our code uses a dual-null
Wormholes and solitonic shells in five-dimensional DGP theory
We build five-dimensional spherically symmetric wormholes within the DGP theory. We calculate the energy localized on the shell, and we find that the wormholes could be supported by matter not
It is demonstrated that the compact signal propagates through the wormhole and the dynamics of the fields in this process for both cases: collapse of the worm hole into the black hole and for the expanding wormhole.
Instability of the massive Klein-Gordon field on the Kerr spacetime
We investigate the instability of the massive scalar field in the vicinity of a rotating black hole. The instability arises from amplification caused by the classical superradiance effect. The
Nonminimal coupling for the gravitational and electromagnetic fields: Traversable electric wormholes
We discuss new exact solutions of a three-parameter nonminimal Einstein-Maxwell model. The solutions describe static spherically symmetric objects with and without center, supported by an electric
The Ringing wormholes
We investigate the response of the traversable wormholes to the external perturbations through finding their characteristic frequencies and time-domain profiles. The considered solution describes
Quasinormal behavior of the D -dimensional Schwarzschild black hole and the higher order WKB approach
We study characteristic (quasinormal) modes of a $D$-dimensional Schwarzshild black hole. It proves out that the real parts of the complex quasinormal modes, representing the real oscillation
Wormholes supported by polytropic phantom energy
It is generally agreed that the acceleration of the Universe can best be explained by the presence of dark or phantom energy. The equation of state of the latter shows that the null energy condition
