Recently, the interest in wormholes has increased because of the possibility of interstellar travel or future time travel to past world. Since the formulation of Einstein’s equations, several features of these solutions were addressed, such as Einstein-Rosen bridges [1]; Wheeler [2] analyzed this kind of solutions and coined the name of wormholes. The most important and popular contribution to these solutions was given by Morris and Thorne [3], they were the first who made a complete and detailed investigation in this field. Wormholes are solutions to Einstein’s field equations which represent two connected universes or a connection between two distant regions of universe. For realistic models of traversable wormholes, one should address additional engineering issues such as tidal effects. People is skeptic about them because they contradict some commonly accepted reasonable energy conditions, for example, their structure requires matter with negative energy density as a source, i. e. exotic matter [3]. A full revision on wormholes can be consulted in [4] and [5]. Among an enormous variety of wormhole solutions, there are some kind of spherically symmetric wormholes that evolve with time. This type of wormholes have been extensively analyzed. Roman [6] explored the possibility that inflation might provide a mechanism to enlarge tiny wormholes to macroscopic size and investigated the possibility of avoiding the violation of the energy conditions in the process. Further evolving dynamic wormhole geometries were analyzed, considering specific cases [7]- [9]; and also was considered the evolution of a wormhole model in an FRW background [10]. On the other hand, nonlinear electrodynamics has recently been applied in several branches in physics, namely, as effective theories at different levels of string/M-theory [11], cosmological models [12], black holes [13]- [14] and in wormhole physics [15], among others. In this context, in a recent paper it was shown that (2 + 1) and (3 + 1)-dimensional static spherically symmetric as well as stationary axisymmetric traversable wormholes cannot be supported by nonlinear electrodynamics [16]. However, it was found an evolving wormhole solution within nonlinear electrodynamics [17], where the lagrangian depends in nonlinear way on one electromagnetic invariant. In this paper we explore some properties of the evolving wormhole geometry in the context of nonlinear electrodynamics. This paper is outlined in the following manner. In section II, we describe briefly (3+1)-dimensional evolving spherically symmetric wormholes coupled with nonlinear electrodynamics. Section III is devoted to the study of wormhole geometry in the aspects of: traversability conditions, linear limit and photon trajectories. In Section IV we analyze the case when the lagrangian depends on the two electromagnetic invariants, attempting to find a more general solution. In section V some conclusions are given. We shall use geometrized units, i.e., G = c = 1, throughout this work.

It is important to observe that Ω(t) → ∞ as t → t0 = α−1 log(±C1 C1 C2 ) showing a time singularity that must be avoided. where qm is a constant related to magnetic charge. from Eq. therefore for α > 0 we need to impose C1 > C2 and if α < 0 it is required that C1 < C2 .

This result is in close relationship to the regular magnetic black holes coupled to nonlinear electrodynamics found in [14]. So in general the flare out condition is fulfilled by the solutions (14) and (13). Using Eq.

Another feature that must be explored for a wormhole solution is the one related to the form of the function z (r) from the embedded diagram [3]. embedding then in a flat three dimensional Euclidean space. then we need to impose C1 eαt > C2 e−αt . (22) . an imperative feature to appear in any wormhole solution is the so called flare out condition once the embedded diagram is given. namely: flaring out condition and embedded diagram. (19) III.

We conclude that geometry (4) does not allow nonlinear electromagnetic matter related to a lagrangian L(F. so the solution to Gtt = −Grr can be solved separating variables like in (11): ˆˆ ˆˆ ˆˆ ˆˆ 2 b(r) = r 1 − α2 r2 − r0 2α Ω(t) = . sin(θ) (67) (68) (69) [B cos(θ) − ∂θ B sin(θ)] LF = 0. L = L(F ) + κG This term breaks the duality rotation symmetry of the electromagnetic field. except for an additional term κG. when there is dependence on both electromagnetic invariants. The electromagnetic field Eqs. Ttt = −Trr . (68).
