The momentum operator for a spin-less particle when confined to a 2D surface embedded into 3D space acquires a geometrical component proportional to the mean curvature that renders it Hermitian. As a consequence, the quantum force operator for a particle confined to spherical and cylindrical surfaces, and free otherwise, derived by applying the Heisenberg equation of motion is found to have an apparently no-radial component in addition to the standard classical radial centripetal force. This component which renders the force operator Hermitian is shown to be essential for the vanishing of the torque the force exerts on the particle and so for the conservation of orbital angular momentum and energy. It is demonstrated that the total force is in fact radial as should be the case for a torque-less one and so can be identified as the quantum centripetal force.

THE ENERGY LOCALIZATION PROBLEM AND THE RENORMALIZED VACUUM ENERGY IN STATIC ROBERTSON-WALKER UNIVERSES
BAYM, SS (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1994-10-01)
We calculate the renormalized quantum vacuum energy inside a spherical boundary for the massless conformal scalar field in curved background Robertson-Walker geometry. We use the mode sum method with an exponential cuttoff. In our calculations we do not make assumptions about the exterior geometry or the global topology of the universe.
The gravitational effect on induced charge density for an obliquely rotating neutron start
De Paolis, F; Qadir, A; Tarman, Işık Hakan (1999-11-01)
The effect on the induced charge density of the gravitational field of a rotating neutron star with its magnetic axis inclined with respect to the rotational axis is investigated. While gravitation increases the charge density the obliquity reduces it.
The Sigma(0)Lambda transition magnetic moment in light cone QCD sum rules
Alıyev, Tahmasıb; Özpineci, Altuğ; Savcı, Mustafa (2001-09-20)
Using the general form of the Sigma (0) and Lambda currents, the Sigma (0)Lambda transition magnetic moment is calculated in framework of the light cone QCD sum rules. A comparison of our result on this quantity with the existing theoretical results and experimental data is presented.
The Wigner molecule in a 2D quantum dot
Akman, N; Tomak, Mehmet (1999-10-01)
The charge density and pair correlation function of three interacting electrons confined within a two-dimensional disc-like hard-wall quantum dot are calculated by full numerical diagonalization of the Hamiltonian. The formation of a Wigner molecule in the form of equilateral triangular configuration for electrons is observed as the size of the dot is increased.
The scaled Hermite–Weber basis in the spectral and pseudospectral pictures
Taşeli, Hasan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-10)
Computational efficiencies of the discrete (pseudospectral, collocation) and continuous (spectral, Rayleigh-Ritz, Galerkin) variable representations of the scaled Hermite-Weber basis in finding the energy eigenvalues of Schrodinger operators with several potential functions have been compared. It is well known that the so-called differentiation matrices are neither skew-symmetric nor symmetric in a pseudospectral formulation of a differential equation, unlike their Rayleigh-Ritz counterparts. In spite of th...
