Casimir energy of the massless conformal scalar field on S-2 by the point-splitting method

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.

CASIMIR ENERGY IN A CURVED BACKGROUND WITH A SPHERICAL BOUNDARY - AN EXACTLY SOLVABLE CASE
BAYIN, SS; OZCAN, M (1993-09-15)
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-splitt...
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...
HAMILTON-JACOBI DYNAMICS FOR THE SOLUTION OF TIME-DEPENDENT QUANTUM PROBLEMS .2. WAVE-PACKET PROPAGATION IN 2-DIMENSIONAL, NONLINEARLY COUPLED OSCILLATORS - EXACT AND TIME-DEPENDENT SCF-SOLUTIONS
GUNKEL, T; BAR, HJ; ENGEL, M; YURTSEVER, E; BRICKMANN, J (1994-12-01)
Methods for the approximate numerical integration of the time dependent Schrodinger equation with given initial conditions (the initial wave packet) are presented. The methods are based on the Schrodinger representation of the quantum dynamic system. The quantum dynamic equations are transformed into Hamilton-Jacobi type equations of motion as they occur in multi particle classical dynamics, i.e. standard techniques in molecular dynamics can be applied for the integration. The dynamics of minimum uncerta...
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 ...
Interacting electrons in a 2D quantum dot
Akman, N; Tomak, Mehmet (1999-04-01)
The exact numerical diagonalization of the Hamiltonian of a 2D circular quantum dot is performed for 2, 3, and 4 electrons. The results an compared with those of the perturbation theory. Our numerical results agree reasonably well for small values of the dimensionless coupling constant lambda = a/a(B) where a is the dot radius and a(B) is the effective Bohr radius. Exact diagonalization results are compared with the classical predictions, and they are found to be almost coincident for large lambda values.
