Abstract [en]

In this literature review we discus and describe the theoretically predicted phenomena known as wormholes, where two different regions of space-time are joined by a “throat” or a “bridge”. If information or even an observer could be sent through the wormhole we refer to it as traversable. We argue that traversable wormholes demands negative energy densities and display a number of different constructions found within the field. Among these the orgional construction by EinsteinRosen and Morris-Thornes discussion on traversability. We also give a overview of the current state of the field by presenting to more recently published papers: “Casimir Energy of a Long Wormhole Throat” av Luke Buther och “Traversable Wormholes via a Double Trace Deformation” av Ping Gao, Daniel Louis Jafferis och Aron C.Wall.
