We numerically construct a symmetric wormhole solution in pure Einstein gravity supported by a massive 3-form field with a potential that contains a quartic self-interaction term. The wormhole spacetimes have only a single throat and they are everywhere regular and asymptotically flat. Furthermore, their mass and throat circumference increase almost linearly as the coefficient of the quartic self-interaction term Λ increases. The amount of violation of the null energy condition (NEC) is… Expand

Some unusual wormholes in general relativity
In this short review we present some recently obtained traversable wormhole models in the framework of general relativity (GR) in four and six dimensions that somehow widen our common ideas onExpand


Astrophysical Wormholes
Wormholes are hypothetical spacetime structures with non-trivial topology capable of connecting either two distant regions of the same universe or two different universes, as illustrated in Fig. 1.Expand
Constraining Wormhole Geometries using the Orbit of S2 Star and the Event Horizon Telescope
In this paper we study the possibility of having a wormhole (WH) as a candidate for the Sgr A? central object and test this idea by constraining their geometry using the motion of S2 star and theExpand
Double gravitational layer traversable wormholes in hybrid metric-Palatini gravity
In this work, we explore the existence of traversable wormhole solutions supported by double gravitational layer thin-shells and satisfying the Null Energy Condition (NEC) throughout the wholeExpand
Epicyclic frequencies in static and spherically symmetric wormhole geometries
The measurement of the epicyclic frequencies is a widely used astrophysical technique to infer information on a given self-gravitating system and on the related gravity background. We derive theirExpand
Modified Gravity and Cosmology: An Update by the CANTATA Network
General Relativity and the ΛCDM framework are currently the standard lore and constitute the concordance paradigm. Nevertheless, long-standing open theoretical issues, as well as possible newExpand
Morris-Thorne wormhole in the vector-tensor theories with Abelian gauge symmetry breaking
We construct an asymptotically flat Morris-Thorne wormhole solution supported by anisotropic matter fluid and a vector field which is coupled to gravity in a non-minimal way with broken Abelian gaugeExpand

Quark matter supported wormhole in third order Lovelock gravity
It is generally believed that wormholes are supported by exotic matter violating Null Energy Condition (NEC). However, various studies of wormhole geometries under Lovelock theories of gravity haveExpand
Quasiperiodic oscillations around rotating traversable wormholes
We study the quasi-periodic oscillations from the accretion disk around rotating traversable wormholes by means of the resonance models. We investigate the linear stability of the circular geodesicExpand
Quasiperiodic oscillations in rotating Ellis wormhole spacetimes
We analyze the properties of the circular orbits for massive particles in the equatorial plane of symmetric rotating Ellis wormholes. In particular, we obtain the orbital frequencies and the radialExpand
