#### 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 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.
