Quantum noise in gravitation and cosmology
We begin by enumerating the many processes in gravitation and cosmology where quantum noise and fluctuations play an active role such as particle creation, galaxy formation, and entropy generation.Expand

Self-force on extreme mass ratio inspirals via curved spacetime effective field theory
In this series we construct an effective field theory (EFT) in curved spacetime to study gravitational radiation and backreaction effects. We begin in this paper with a derivation of the self-forceExpand

Probing a Gravitational Cat State
We investigate the nature of a gravitational two-state system (G2S) in the simplest setup in Newtonian gravity. In a quantum description of matter a single motionless massive particle can inExpand

Equivalence Principle for Quantum Systems: Dephasing and Phase Shift of Free-Falling Particles
We ask the question how the (weak) equivalence principle established in classical gravitational physics should be reformulated and interpreted for massive quantum objects that may also have internalExpand

A Master Equation for Gravitational Decoherence: Probing the Textures of Spacetime
We give a first principles derivation of a master equation for the evolution of a quantum matter field in a linearly perturbed Minkowski spacetime, based solely on quantum field theory and generalExpand

Temporal and spatial dependence of quantum entanglement from a field theory perspective
We consider the entanglement dynamics between two Unruh-DeWitt detectors at rest separated at a distance d. This simple model when analyzed properly in quantum field theory shows many interestingExpand

Accelerated detector-quantum field correlations: From vacuum fluctuations to radiation flux
In this paper we analyze the interaction of a uniformly accelerated detector with a quantum field in (3+1)D spacetime, aiming at the issue of how kinematics can render vacuum fluctuations theExpand

Disentanglement of two harmonic oscillators in relativistic motion
We study the dynamics of quantum entanglement between two Unruh-DeWitt detectors, one stationary (Alice), and another uniformly accelerating (Rob), with no direct interaction but coupled to a commonExpand

Comparison of Analytical and Experimental Results for Longitudinal Impacts on Elastic Rods
In this paper, the dynamic problem of a rigid body colliding with an elastic rod is studied in some detail. Different contact theories for modeling impact responses are compared with experimentalExpand
