The exponential Papapetrou metric induced by scalar field conforms to observational data not worse than the vacuum Schwarzschild solution. Here, we analyze the origin of this metric as a peculiar space-time within a wide class of scalar and antiscalar solutions of the Einstein equations parameterized by scalar charge. Generalizing the three families of static solutions obtained by Fisher (Zhurnal Experimental’noj i Teoreticheskoj Fiziki 18:636, 1948), Janis et al. (Phys Rev Lett 20(16):878…

How appropriate are the gravitational entropy proposals for traversable wormholes?

It is found that the GE proposals do give us a consistent measure of GE in several of them, which means that the existence of a viable gravitational entropy strictly depends on its definition.

Coordinate effect: Vaidya solutions without integrating the field equations

We extend Vaidya’s algorithm for the description of a central mass losing or gaining energy due to electromagnetic-type radiation (‘null dust’) to the case of arbitrary radial corpuscular radiation.



On the stability of scalar-vacuum space-times

We study the stability of static, spherically symmetric solutions to the Einstein equations with a scalar field as the source. We describe a general methodology of studying small radial perturbations

Scalar mesostatic field with regard for gravitational effects

(Foreword by translator.) The aim of present translation is to clarify the historically important question who was the pioneer in obtaining of exact static solutions of Einstein equations minimally

Simpler than vacuum: Antiscalar alternatives to black holes

The Janis-Newman-Winicour and Papapetrou metrics represent counterparts to the Schwarzschild black hole with scalar and antiscalar background fields, correspondingly (where "anti" is to be understood

Exponential metric represents a traversable wormhole

For various reasons a number of authors have mooted an "exponential form" for the spacetime metric: \[ ds^2 = - e^{-2m/r} dt^2 + e^{+2m/r}\{dr^2 + r^2(d\theta^2+\sin^2\theta \, d\phi^2)\}. \] While

Scalarized Raychaudhuri identity and its applications

We show that the covariant Raychaudhuri identity describing kinematic characteristics of space-time admits a representation involving a geometrical scalar $\xi$ which, depending on circumstances,

New Approach to General Relativity

A generally covariant scalar field theony of gravitation is presented. The principle of equivalence as well as the principle of gcneral covalance are preserved. A functional solution of Einstein's


A static and circularly symmetric lens character- ized by mass and scalar charge parameters is constructed. For the small values of the scalar charge to the mass ratio, the gravitational lensing is

Einstein gravity coupled to a massless scalar field in arbitrary spacetime dimensions.

We obtain the exact static spherically symmetric solution of the coupled Einstein--massless-scalar-field equations for arbitrary spacetime dimensions. The general solution involves two parameters: it

Gravitation without black holes.

The Schwarzschild, Reissner-Nordstroem, and Kerr exterior solutions in general relativity are reconsidered adding to the vacuum a massless scalar field. The event horizons in the modified solutions
