CASIMIR ENERGY IN A CURVED BACKGROUND WITH A SPHERICAL BOUNDARY - AN EXACTLY SOLVABLE CASE

1993-09-15
BAYIN, SS
OZCAN, M
We reconsider the Casimir effect for the massless conformal scalar field in a ''half Einstein universe.'' This case is interesting in that it could be solved analytically by several different methods. Thus, it allows us to compare and understand effects of different approaches. We first calculate the renormalized vacuum energy by using the mode sum method and study the effects of different cutoff functions. Next, we calculate the renormalized vacuum energy-momentum tensor by using the covariant point-splitting method. We construct the Green's functions by using the eigenfunctions, which are obtained by solving the wave equation with the appropriate boundary conditions (Dirichlet and Neumann). We discuss further properties of this case as well as its relation to previous calculations.

CASIMIR EFFECT IN A HALF EINSTEIN UNIVERSE - AN EXACTLY SOLVABLE CASE IN CURVED BACKGROUND AND WITH A SPHERICAL BOUNDARY
BAYIN, SS; OZCAN, M (IOP Publishing, 1993-09-01)
We reconsider the Casimir problem for the massless conformal scalar field in a 'half Einstein universe'. We first calculate the renormalized vacuum energy by using the mode sum method. Next, we calculate the renormalized vacuum energy-momentum tensor by using the point-splitting method. We construct the Green function by using the eigenfunctions, which are obtained by solving the wave equation with the appropriate boundary conditions. We discuss the importance of this case as well as its relation to previo...
Effective mass Schrodinger equation for exactly solvable class of one-dimensional potentials
Aktas, Metin; Sever, Ramazan (2008-01-01)
We deal with the exact solutions of Schrodinger equation characterized by position-dependent effective mass via point canonical transformations. The Morse, Poschl-Teller, and Hulthen type potentials are considered, respectively. With the choice of position-dependent mass forms, exactly solvable target potentials are constructed. Their energy of the bound states and corresponding wavefunctions are determined exactly.
Casimir energy of the massless conformal scalar field on S-2 by the point-splitting method
Bayin, SS; Ozcan, M (1997-10-01)
We calculate the Casimir energy of the massless conformal scalar held on the surface (S-2) of a 3 dimensional Riemann sphere by using the point-splitting, mode sum and the zeta-function renormalization methods. We also consider the half space case with both the Dirichlet and the Neumann boundary conditions. This problem is interesting since the Casimir energy could be calculated analytically by various methods, thus allowing us to compare different regularization schemes.

Minimal massive gravity: Conserved charges, excitations, and the chiral gravity limit
Tekin, Bayram (2014-10-15)
We find the excitations and construct the conserved charges (mass and angular momentum) of the recently found minimal massive gravity (MMG) in 2 + 1 dimensions in asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetimes. The field equation of the theory does not come from an action and lacks the required Bianchi identity needed to define conserved charges. But the theory, which also provides a healthy extension of the topologically massive gravity in the bulk and boundary of spacetime, does admit conserved charges for the ...
Thermodynamics of Lifshitz black holes
Devecioglu, Deniz Olgu; Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-06-23)
We apply the recently extended conserved Killing charge definition of Abbott-Deser-Tekin formalism to compute, for the first time, the energies of analytic Lifshitz black holes in higher dimensions. We then calculate the temperature and the entropy of this large family of solutions, and study and discuss the first law of black hole thermodynamics. Along the way we also identify the possible critical points of the relevant quadratic curvature gravity theories. Separately, we also apply the generalized Killin...
