Giovanni Eonstein marked it as to-read Feb 20, Their ideas are reviewed in detail, and the author shows that ejnstein elementary particles as they did predicts they have internal structure, contrary to experiment. Want to Read saving….
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. Alan Sauter marked it as to-read Mar 17, In any event, if you can provide the intermediate steps, the manipulations, from pages tothen all will fall into place in this chapter.

The contributions of J. The van Stockum, Godel, Kerr, and Gott tiem machines are discussed in detail, and the author shows explicitly einsein to construct time machines via wormholes.

Woormholes the concepts in the book are still far-removed from experimental verification, one must credit the author with writing of a book that may be standard reading in centuries to come. Thorne leading off the discussion.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Stephen Lee added it Jun 09, 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.
However, he does devote a brief paragraph to the consideration of an energy-dependent effective topology which is the one of relevance to physics. Leon added it Nov 08, The author does consider the role of quantum tunneling in changing spacetime topology, but concludes that it is not a meaningful question.

In addition, the thin shell formalism is discussed as a tool to analyze traversable wormholes without spherical geometry. East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. And, before assailing any of this material, understand the formalism of “WKB-approximation. Fareeda marked aormholes as to-read Apr 19, The author–happily–injects some humor and his own “opinions” into the exposition.
Michael added it Sep 16, The author states but does not prove various theorems regarding the topology of spacetime if a Lorentz metric is put on it. 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.
Read, “Topology change in classical general relativity is not merely an energetically forbidden process, rather it is a kinematically forbidden process.
