On a possible connection between wormholes and soft gamma repeaters

A. Pozanenko1 and A. Shatskiy2

Abstract

We consider and discuss the observational properties of gamma-ray bursts transmitted by hypothetical wormholes. We show that the known sources of soft gamma repeaters (SGR) cannot be wormhole candidates.
