A static spherically symmetric wormhole solution for conformal gravity in vacuum is found. The solution possesses a single integration constant which determines the size of the neck connecting two static homogeneous universes of constant spatial curvature. Time runs at different rates on each side of the neck, and depending on the value of the parameter, the wormhole can develop a cosmological horizon only at one side. It is shown that the wormholes correspond to the matching of different…

Wormholes in conformal gravity

We present a new class of solutions for static spherically symmetric wormhole spacetimes in conformal gravity and outline a detailed method for their construction. As an explicit example, we

Asymptotically (anti) de Sitter Black Holes and Wormholes with a Self Interacting Scalar Field in Four Dimensions.

The aim of this paper is to report on the existence of a wide variety of exact solutions, ranging from black holes to wormholes, when a conformally coupled scalar field with a self-interacting

Ellis wormhole without a phantom scalar field.

This paper presents an exact solution for (3 + 1)-dimensional Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet theory (EsGB) in electrovacuum that corresponds to a charged wormhole with a throat at the region r = |Q| and is also supported by a real scalar field having a positive kinetic term.

Horizon symmetries and hairy black holes in AdS

We investigate whether supertranslation symmetry may appear in a scenario that involves black holes in AdS space. The framework we consider is massive 3D gravity, which admits a rich black hole phase

Asymptotically Lifshitz wormholes and black holes for Lovelock gravity in vacuum

Static asymptotically Lifshitz wormholes and black holes in vacuum are shown to exist for a class of Lovelock theories in d = 2n + 1 > 7 dimensions, selected by requiring that all but one of their n

The tetralogy of Birkhoff theorems

We classify the existent Birkhoff-type theorems into four classes: first, in field theory, the theorem states the absence of helicity 0- and spin 0-parts of the gravitational field. Second, in

Wormhole geometries in fourth-order conformal Weyl gravity

We present an analysis of the classic wormhole geometries based on conformal Weyl gravity, rather than standard general relativity. The main characteristics of the resulting traversable wormholes

Static wormholes in vacuum and gravity in diverse dimensions

Static wormhole solutions in vacuum for gravity in diverse dimensions are discussed. In dimensions greater than four the theory corresponds to a particular case of the Lovelock action, so that it



General class of wormhole geometries in conformal Weyl gravity

In this work, a general class of wormhole geometries in conformal Weyl gravity is analyzed. A wide variety of exact solutions of asymptotically flat spacetimes is found, in which the stress–energy

Static wormhole solution for higher-dimensional gravity in vacuum

A static wormhole solution for gravity in vacuum is found for odd dimensions greater than four and shows that both asymptotically locally AdS spacetimes are connected by light signals in a finite time.

Gravitational solitons and C0 vacuum metrics in five-dimensional Lovelock gravity

Junction conditions for vacuum solutions in five-dimensional Einstein–Gauss–Bonnet gravity are studied. We focus on those cases where two spherically symmetric regions of space-time are joined in

Exact solutions for the Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet theory in five dimensions: Black holes, wormholes, and spacetime horns

An exhaustive classification of a certain class of static solutions for the five-dimensional Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet theory in vacuum is presented. The class of metrics under consideration is such that

Birkhoff's Theorem in Conformal Gravity

We prove Birkhoff's theorem in conformal gravity: The most general spherically symmetric, electrovac solution is static, and hence absolutely stable against spherically symmetric perturbations. This

Five tensor equations are obtained for a thin shell in Gauss-Bonnet gravity. There is the well-known junction condition for the singular part of the stress tensor intrinsic to the shell, which we

A derivation of Weyl gravity

In this paper, two things are done. (i) Using cohomological techniques, we explore the consistent deformations of linearized conformal gravity in 4 dimensions. We show that the only possibility
