Dave Bacon added it May 10, Read, “Topology change in classical general relativity is not merely an energetically forbidden process, rather it is a kinematically forbidden process. The stress-energy tensor is calculated explictly for traversable wormhole spacetimes.

Akshay Chalana marked it as to-read Nov 08, Wormgoles for telling us about the problem. The author shows that time- and space-orientable spacetimes are incompatible with the Standard model. He discusses in detail the result that the ANEC condition can be violated by scale anomalies.

This, when discussing chronology protection conjecture. Want to Read saving…. It’s perfect and unique textbook in its field of general relativity. Physicists, students of general relativity, cosmology, quantum physics, or any interested reader with a lorentzin in physics wil find this a provocative introduction to an exciting and active topic of ongoing research.


Lorentzian Wormholes: From Einstein to Hawking

Visser shows that by pushing established physical theories to their limits, it is possible to deduce the physical properties of such exotica as wormholes and time travel. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Adam Getchell rated it really liked it Aug 30, Noog marked it as to-read Apr 13, I was surprised to learn that the study of wormholes goes as far back as in paper by the physicist L. Drawing on pivotal work by Einstein, Wheeler, Morris, Thorne, Hawking, and others, Matt Visser charts the development and current state of Lorentzian wormhole physics.

ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. These results are pretty restrictive in limiting the existence of certain topology changes, but as the author remarks, one can abandon the idea of spacetime being everywhere-Lorentzian if one gives up the strong equivalence principle, an idea he clearly is not comfortable with.

A very interesting, and critical discussion is given of topology changes of spacetime via quantum fluctuations. Amazon Music Stream millions of songs.

Let us read what Matt Visser has to say: I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? Their ideas are reviewed in detail, and the author shows that viewing elementary particles as they did predicts they have internal structure, contrary to experiment. Topology though, not topology hawknig in various guises, will be met time and again throughout the text.

Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. When reading the book, one can only hope that its ideas, or some similar to them, will eventually allow humans to traverse time and space routinely.


Michael added it Sep 16, This is a rather unusual monograph.

An active group of general relativists and quantum field theorists has produced a considerable body of serious thought admittedly speculative mathematical and physical analyses of the wormhole system. East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. If viewed from a quantum perspective, many of the usual mathematical structures in topology and other areas of mathematics are changed considerably.

Trivia About Lorentzian Wormho From Einstein to Drom by Matt Visser. Abhinav marked it as to-read Oct 26, The reader will need a strong background in general relativity and quantum field theory to woormholes appreciate the book, but after reading it will obtain a solid understanding of what might be calle, in the words of the author, “non-boring” physics.

One can then perform a kind of interpolation between “quantum” and “classical” mathematical constructions.
