Geon black holes and quantum field theory

A geon, short for gravitational-electromagnetic entity, was introduced in 1955 by John
Archibald Wheeler as a configuration of the gravitational field, possibly coupled to other… 670 more words

Topological Geons

Topological geons are topological structures which are ‘quasi-localized’ and therefore capable of behaving like particles. The relevant topology here is purely spatial and is real as opposed to virtual. 175 more words

Geons

Geons with spin and charge

The term geon, short for gravitational-electromagnetic entity, was introduced in 1955 by John Archibald Wheeler to denote a classical gravitational configuration, possibly
coupled to electromagnetism or other zero-mass fields, that appears as a long-lived massive object when observed from a distance but is not a… 197 more words

Stability of Gravitational and Electromagnetic Geons

The concept of a structure comprised of electromagnetic waves held together by its own gravitational attraction was first conceived by Wheeler.

General Relativity and the Gravitational Geon

Gravitational geons are concentrations of radiation held together for a long time by their own gravitational attraction . John Wheeler‘s analyses can be extended to the case where… 1,071 more words
