Abstract Black holes are extremely dense and compact objects from which light cannot escape. There is an overall consensus that black holes exist and many astronomical objects are identified with black holes. White holes were understood as the exact time reversal of black holes, therefore they should continuously throw away material. It is accepted, however, that a persistent ejection of mass leads to gravitational pressure, the formation of a black hole and thus to the “death of while holes… Expand
White Holes as Remnants: A Surprising Scenario for the End of a Black Hole
Quantum tunneling of a black hole into a white hole provides a model for the full life cycle of a black hole. The white hole acts as a long-lived remnant, solving the black-hole information paradox.Expand
An Idea to a World inside a Black Hole
An investigation on black holes reveals interesting new data. Due to the many speculations about the inside of black holes a concept is developed to allow consideration of the properties occuringExpand
Hawking radiation in the interaction region of the colliding plane gravitational waves with linear polarization
There exists some of the extension to the colliding plane gravitational waves (CPWs) of the soliton solution by Ferrari and Ibanez. However, no one gives the corresponding conditions for eachExpand
The second closest gamma-ray burst: sub-luminous GRB 111005A with no supernova in a super-solar metallicity environment
We report the detection of the radio afterglow of a long gamma-ray burst (GRB) 111005A at 5-345 GHz, including the very long baseline interferometry observations with the positional error of 0.2 mas.Expand
The Live Universe. A Biologist's Perspective
Astrobiology looks at all aspects related to life in places other than the Earth, including its biomolecular building blocks and suitable environmental conditions. In the present article, a differentExpand
The Physics of Belief and the Beautiful Brain
The interplay between the human brain and the environment is both dynamic and mysterious. For millennia phenomena have been experienced and observed by our ancestors of all cultures. But in theExpand
Review of scientific topics for the Millimetron space observatory
This paper reviews a wide range of questions in astrophysics and cosmology that can be answered by astronomical observations in the far-IR to millimeter wavelength range and which include theExpand
Recursive Heaviside step functions and beginning of the universe
Abstract This article introduces recursive Heaviside step functions, as a potential of the known universe, for the first time in the history of mathematics, science, and engineering. In modernExpand
The Relativity of Time
In this development upon five leading papers [1-5], the idea of the “relativity of time” shall be fully addressed, providing the rationale to how the overall manifold of time-space would performExpand
Some constraints for the extensions of the degenerate Ferrari and Ibanez solution
There exist two extensions to the interaction region of the Ferrari and Ibanez solution. However, no one gives the corresponding conditions for each extension. To solve this problem, we haveExpand


A White Hole Model of the Big Bang
A model of the universe as a very large white hole provides a useful alternative inhomogeneous theory to pit against the homogeneous standard FLRW big bang models. The white hole would have to beExpand
Is the Universe a white-hole?
Abstract Pathria (1972) has shown, for a pressureless closed Universe, that it is inside a black (or white) hole. We show now, that the Universe with a cosmic pressure obeying Einstein’s fieldExpand
Black Holes from stars to galaxies : across the range of masses : proceedings of the 238th symposium of the international astronomical union held in Prague, Czech Republic, August 21-25, 2006
Until recently, black holes were often considered as exotic objects of dubious existence. In the last decade, observations have provided overwhelming evidence in favour of the presence ofExpand
A novel explosive process is required for the γ-ray burst GRB 060614
Over the past decade, our physical understanding of γ-ray bursts (GRBs) has progressed rapidly, thanks to the discovery and observation of their long-lived afterglow emission. Long-duration (≳2 s)Expand
White holes and high energy astrophysics
The role of exploding objects in high-energy astrophysics is discussed. Quantitative results are obtained for the simple case of the canonical white hole which explodes from a singularity andExpand
Gamma-ray astrophysics.
Abstract Because of the very nature of the production processes. γ-ray astrophysics provides an excellent new opportunity to gain insight into the nature of the Universe. Gamma-ray astronomy permitsExpand
The gamma ray burst – supernova connection
A "core-collapse" supernova occurs when the iron core of a massive star collapses under the force of gravity and then rebounds, generating pressure waves and shocks that propagate outward. AExpand
An unusual supernova in the error box of the γ-ray burst of 25 April 1998
The discovery of afterglows associated with γ-ray bursts at X-ray, optical and radio wavelengths and the measurement of the redshifts of some of these events, has established that γ-ray bursts lie atExpand
A new γ-ray burst classification scheme from GRB 060614
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are known to come in two duration classes, separated at ∼2 s. Long-duration bursts originate from star-forming regions in galaxies, have accompanying supernovae when these areExpand
An enigmatic long-lasting γ-ray burst not accompanied by a bright supernova
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are short, intense flashes of soft γ-rays coming from the distant Universe. Long-duration GRBs (those lasting more than ∼2 s) are believed to originate from the deaths ofExpand
