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, providing a possible resolution to the

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 occuring

Theories of central engine for long gamma-ray bursts

Long GRBs are the most powerful explosions in the universe since the Big Bang. At least, some fraction of long GRBs are born from the death of massive stars. Likewise, only some fraction of massive

How Weber in 1961 initiated the process of quantization of early universe fields to the problem of what may be emitted at the mouth of a wormhole is utilized and an approximation for the Hubble parameter parameterized from Temperature using Sarkar’s H ~ Temperature relations is utilized.

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 the

Quantum Oppenheimer-Snyder and Swiss Cheese Models

By considering the quantum Oppenheimer-Snyder model in loop quantum cosmology, a new quantum black hole model whose metric tensor is a suitably deformed Schwarzschild one is derived. The quantum

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 the

Looking at Quantization of a Wave Function, from Weber (1961), to Signals from Wavefunctions at the Mouth of a Wormhole

We utilize how Weber in 1961 initiated the process of quantization of early universe fields to the problem of what may be emitted at the mouth of a wormhole. While the wormhole models are well

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 perform



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 field

The Supernova Gamma-Ray Burst Connection

The chief distinction between ordinary supernovae and long-soft gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) is the degree of differential rotation in the inner several solar masses when a massive star dies, and GRBs are

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)

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 and

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 at

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 are

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 of

A Tidal Disruption Model for the Gamma-Ray Burst of GRB 060614

The combination of a long duration and the absence of any accompanying supernova clearly shows that GRB 060614 cannot be grouped into the two conventional classes of gamma-ray bursts; i.e., the

The Gamma-Ray Burst - Supernova Connection

A preponderance of evidence links long-duration, soft-spectrum gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) with the death of massive stars. The observations of the GRB-supernova (SN) connection present the most direct

Gamma-ray astrophysics

Abstractγ-ray astronomy is the study of the most energetic photons originating in our Galaxy and beyond, and therefore, provides the most direct means of studying the largest transfers of energy
