In this talk I discuss pertinence of the wormholes to the problem of circumventing the light speed barrier and present a specific class of wormholes. The wormholes of this class are static and have arbitrarily wide throats, which makes them traversable. The matter necessary for these spacetimes to be solutions of the Einstein equations is shown to consist of two components, one of which satisfies the Weak energy condition and the other is produced by vacuum fluctuations of neutrino, electromagnetic (in dimensional regularization), and/or massless scalar (conformally coupled) fields. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We study the mass neutrino oscillation by solving Hamilton-Jacobi equation in the Kerr-Newman-Kasuya space-time, as an important example of the stationary space-time, and give the general expression of the oscillation phase. A special case, the geodesic with L= aE is considered. Then, the proper...
