Wormholes from conformal matter

Y. Verbin, A. Davidson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Novel wormhole configurations are derived as solutions to the Einstein equations with "ordinary" conformal matter: (1) SU(2) gauge fields; (2) conformally coupled scalar. Due to the conformal symmetry, we find in both cases the same space with vanishing Ricci scalar and two asymptotically euclidean regions. Addition of a positive cosmological constant is also considered and wormhole characteristics are discussed.
