Quantum Instability of the Cauchy Horizon in Reissner-Nordstr\"om-deSitter Spacetime.

- S. Hollands, R. Wald, J. Zahn
- Physics, Mathematics
- 12 December 2019

In classical General Relativity, the values of fields on spacetime are uniquely determined by their values at an initial time within the domain of dependence of this initial data surface. However, it… Expand

Self-intersecting fuzzy extra dimensions from squashed coadjoint orbits in N=4$$ \mathcal{N}=4 $$ SYM and matrix models

- H. Steinacker, J. Zahn
- Physics, Mathematics
- 4 September 2014

A bstractWe find new vacuum solutions of N=4$$ \mathcal{N}=4 $$ super-Yang-Mills with totally antisymmetric cubic soft SUSY breaking terms, or equivalently solutions of the IKKT matrix model of type… Expand

Divergences in Quantum Field Theory on the Noncommutative Two-Dimensional Minkowski Space with Grosse–Wulkenhaar Potential

- J. Zahn
- Mathematics, Physics
- 4 May 2010

Quantum field theory on the noncommutative two-dimensional Minkowski space with Grosse–Wulkenhaar potential is discussed in two ways: in terms of a continuous set of generalised eigenfunctions of the… Expand

Locally covariant chiral fermions and anomalies

- J. Zahn
- Physics, Mathematics
- 8 July 2014

Abstract We define chiral fermions in the presence of non-trivial gravitational and gauge background fields in the framework of locally covariant field theory. This allows to straightforwardly… Expand

Generalized Wentzell boundary conditions and holography

- J. Zahn
- Mathematics
- 17 December 2015

We discuss a free scalar field subject to generalized Wentzell boundary conditions. On the classical level, we prove well-posedness of the Cauchy problem and in particular causality. Upon… Expand

The wave front set of oscillatory integrals with inhomogeneous phase function

- J. Zahn
- Mathematics, Physics
- 10 January 2011

A generalized notion of oscillatory integrals that allows for inhomogeneous phase functions of arbitrary positive order is introduced. The wave front set of the resulting distributions is… Expand

Locally covariant charged fields and background independence

- J. Zahn
- Physics, Mathematics
- 29 November 2013

We discuss gauge background independence at the example of the charged Dirac field. We show that a perturbative version of background independence, termed perturbative agreement by Hollands and Wald,… Expand

Energy flow in acoustic black holes

- K. Choy, T. Kruk, +5 authors D. Pickering
- Physics
- 31 May 2005

We present the results of an analysis of superradiant energy flow due to scalar fields incident on an acoustic black hole. In addition to providing independent confirmation of the recent results in… Expand

Global anomalies on physical space-times

- A. Schenkel, J. Zahn
- Physics
- 21 September 2016

We formulate an algebraic criterion for the presence of global anomalies on globally hyperbolic space-times in the framework of locally covariant field theory. We discuss some consequences and check… Expand

Remarks on twisted noncommutative quantum field theory

- J. Zahn
- Physics
- 29 March 2006

We review recent results on twisted noncommutative quantum field theory by embedding it into a general framework for the quantization of systems with a twisted symmetry. We discuss commutation… Expand
