Abstract

In the framework of a unified five-dimensional geometric theory of gravitation and electromagnetism, a number of static, cylindrically symmetric solutions have been obtained, corresponding to the presence of an azimuthal magnetic field and a scalar field of geometric origin. It is shown that these fields can induce the appearance of a nontrivial space-time topology (in the form of wormholes and cosmic strings).
