White and grey holes in astrophysics

  • A. P. Trofimenko


Astrophysical applications of white and grey holes are considered. Four types of anticollapsars in extended manifolds of general relativity are distinguished: canonical white and grey holes, light- and dark-grey holes. White and grey holes can be revealed in the form of bursts of gravitational and electromagnetic radiation, neutrino, and cosmic rays. Quasars, active galactic nuclei, jets, and cosmic voids can be associated with relicts of white and light-grey holes, and black holes do with relicts of canonical grey and dark-grey holes.
