LORENTZIAN WORMHOLES FROM EINSTEIN TO HAWKING PDF

Read Online Wells to Star Trek, audiences have been captivated by the notions of time travel, time warps, space warps, and wornholes. But science fiction is not the only realm where these concepts thrive. 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. Now, with this fascinating book, readers can explore in depth the science behind the science fiction. Drawing on pivotal work by Einstein, Wheeler, Morris, Thorne, Hawking, and others, Matt Visser charts the development and current state of Lorentzian wormhole physics.

The last part of the book is more of a send off to the reader and an encouragement for further reading on the issues in the book A list of research problems in given for the ambitious and curious reader.

I was surprised to learn that the study of wormholes goes as far back as in paper by the physicist L. Have fun with this book!

Showing of 4 reviews. A very interesting, and critical discussion is given of topology changes of spacetime via quantum fluctuations.

The role of wormhole physics in developing a quantum theory of gravity, via the quantization of weak field gravity and the subsequent appearance of gravitons is treated also.

Lorentzian Wormholes

Brief Description: From H. Wells to Star Trek, audiences have been captivated by the notions of time travel and space warps. But science fiction is not the only place where such concepts thrive. An active group of general relativists and quantum-field theorists has produced a considerable body of serious mathematical and physical analyses of "wormholes"--shortcuts through space and time. These postulated distortions in the fabric of spacetime connect distant regions of the maybe even different universes. Now, with this fascinating book, readers can explore the science behind the science fiction.

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. Now, with this fascinating book, readers can explore in depth the science behind the science fiction. Drawing on pivotal work by Einstein, Wheeler, Morris, Thorne, Hawking, and others, Matt Visser charts the development and current state of Lorentzian wormhole physics. 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.
