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-force… Expand

Probing a Gravitational Cat State

- C. Anastopoulos, B. Hu
- Physics
- 13 April 2015

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 in… Expand

Equivalence Principle for Quantum Systems: Dephasing and Phase Shift of Free-Falling Particles

- C. Anastopoulos, B. Hu
- Physics, Mathematics
- 14 July 2017

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 internal… Expand

A Master Equation for Gravitational Decoherence: Probing the Textures of Spacetime

- C. Anastopoulos, B. Hu
- Physics
- 22 May 2013

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 general… Expand

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 interesting… Expand

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 the… Expand

Disentanglement of two harmonic oscillators in relativistic motion

- S. Lin, Chung-Hsien Chou, B. Hu
- Physics
- 27 March 2008

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 common… Expand

Comparison of Analytical and Experimental Results for Longitudinal Impacts on Elastic Rods

- B. Hu, W. Schiehlen, P. Eberhard
- Engineering
- 1 January 2003

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 experimental… Expand
