Wormholes, naked singularities and universes of ghost radiation

L´aszl´o´A. Gergely

Astronomical Observatory and Department of Experimental Physics,University of Szeged, D´ om t´er 9, Szeged, H-6720 Hungary

Both the static and homogeneous metrics describing the spherically symmetric gravitational ﬁeldof a crossﬂow of incoming and outgoing null dust streams are generalized for the case of the two-component ghost radiation. Static solutions represent either naked singularities or the wormholesrecently found by Hayward. The critical value of the parameter separating the two possibilitiesis given. The wormhole is allowed to have positive mass. The homogeneous solutions are openuniverses.

The static, spherically symmetric solution describing the gravitational ﬁeld of a crossﬂow of null dust streams [1]was recently extended by Hayward [2] for the case of two-component ghost radiation, the resulting solution beinginterpreted as a wormhole

. The original static solution [1] however has a homogeneous counterpart [6]- [7], thesimilar generalization of which is the principal aim of this letter. We also ﬁnd the critical value of one of the metricparameters, which separates naked singularities from wormholes in the static case. We show, that despite the negativeenergy density of the ghost radiation, the wormholes can have positive mass.

L,B

(

L,

). This suggest the existenceof two identical copies of the space-time. Cf. [7] for each value of

B

there are two copies of the singularity

L

in three distinct regions (Fig 1a). From among these

The patches (

L

= 0 in order to obtain a single homogeneous closedKantowski-Sachs type universe. In this latter case

R

is interpreted as the time-dependent radius of the universedescribed locally by the metric (1), case

c

= 1, which is born from and collapses to the singularity

R

= 0. During itsephemeral existence, the energy density of the universe evolves cf. Fig 1b.

8862269255 (Fig 2a.), the singularity is absent for theabove parameter range, and the corresponding solutions are the wormholes of Hayward. This is the major diﬀerencew. r. to the null dust case.For any other value of

b

the singularity is present. We discuss next this possibility. First we remark the symmetryof the metric w. r. to the simultaneous interchange (

l,b

)

→

(

−

l,

−

b

). In particular the two branches of the curve

ζ

(

l

) represent the same singularity. By inspecting Eq. (7), written in the form

cR

= 2

al

[

ζ

(

−

ζ

(

)]

,

(13)with the remark that

ζ

is a monotonously decreasing function (

dζ/dl

=

−

e

−

l

) we see that for

b <

−

b

cr

the singularitydevides the

l >

0 coordinate range in two domains, characterized by

c

= 1 and

c

=

−

1, respectively. Similarly for

b > b

cr

the singularity splits

l <

0 in the

The evolution of the radius

R

in coordinate time

l

is shown on Fig 3. The solutions represent openuniverses, either expanding (

b <

) or contracting (

b > b

cr

). This is to be contrasted with the null dust case, wherethe universe was closed. The evolution of the energy density in the expanding case is shown in Fig 2b. Contrarilywith open universes ﬁlled with ordinary matter, here the magnitude of the energy density ﬁrst decreases from itsoriginal singular value but afterwards it increases again towards inﬁnity.
