Abstract

We extend previous analyses of soliton solutionsin (4 + 1) gravity to new ranges of their definingparameters. The geometry, as studied using invariants,has the topology of wormholes found in (3 + 1) gravity. In the induced-matter picture, thefluid does not satisfy the strong energy conditions, butits gravitational mass is positive. We infer thepossible existence of (4 + 1) which, compared to their (3 + 1) counterparts, are lessexotic.
