Wormhole Solutions  

In General > s.a. constraints for general relativity [gluing solutions]; electromagnetism in curved spacetime; kaluza-klein models.
* Metric: For a static, spherically symmetric wormhole connecting two asymptotically flat (or AdS) regions,

ds2 = –a2(l) dt2 + dl2 + r2(l) dΩ2 ,   or   ds2 = –exp{–2φ(r)}dt2 + [1–b(r)/r]–1dr2 + r22 ,

where φ(r) is the "redshift function" (e.g., φ(r) = 0) and b(r) the "shape function" (e.g., b(r) = rt2/r, r2(l) = r2t + l2).
* Tolman wormhole: A bounce replacing the initial singularity; > s.a. Tolman Solution.
