Lensing and imaging by a stealth defect of spacetime.

F.R. Klinkhamer, Z.L. Wang

We obtain the geodesics for the simplest possible stealth defect which has a flat spacetime. We, then, discuss the lensing properties of such a defect, and the corresponding image formation. Similar lensing properties can be expected to hold for curved-spacetime stealth defects.
