A primer for black hole quantum physics

- R. Brout, S. Massar, R. Parentani, P. Spindel
- Physics
- 1 September 1995

Abstract The mechanisms which give rise to Hawking radiation are revealed by analyzing in detail pair production in the presence of horizons. In preparation for the black hole problem, three… Expand

Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking in Gauge Theories: a Historical Survey

- R. Brout, F. Englert
- Physics
- 20 February 1998

The personal and scientific history of the discovery of spontaneous symmetry breaking in gauge theories is outlined and its scientific content is reviewed

The Creation of the Universe as a Quantum Phenomenon

- R. Brout, F. Englert, E. Gunzig
- Physics
- 15 September 1978

Quantum creation of massy particles can occur in the cosmological context without cost of energy. This fact is seized upon to construct a causal open homogeneous isotropic cosmology. The universe is… Expand

Hawking radiation without transPlanckian frequencies,” Phys

In a recent work, Unruh showed that Hawking radiation is unaffected by a truncation of free field theory at the Planck scale. His analysis was performed numerically and based on a hydrodynamical… Expand

Correlation energy of an electron gas at high density: plasma oscillations

- K. Sawada, K. Brueckner, N. Fukuda, R. Brout
- Physics
- 1 November 1957

The contribution from zero-point plasma oscillations to the correlation energy of an electron gas at high density is considered, using the exact high- density theory of GellMann and Brueckner and of… Expand

On the concept of time and the origin of the cosmological temperature

- R. Brout
- Physics
- 1 June 1987

Time arises in the theory of gravity through the semiclassical approximation of the gravitational part of the solution of the Wheeler-De Witt equation in the manner shown by Banks (SCAG). We… Expand

Chiral Symmetry Breaking in the Action Formulation of Lattice Gauge Theory

- J. Blairon, R. Brout, F. Englert, J. Greensite
- Physics
- 25 May 1981

Abstract We show, in the euclidean path-integral formulation of strong-coupling lattice gauge theory, that continuous chiral symmetry is dynamically broken, and obtain the standard current algebra… Expand

On the onset of time and temperature in cosmology

- R. Brout, G. Horwitz, D. Weil
- Physics
- 2 July 1987

It is shown how the evolution of matter is parametrized by classical time in cosmological configurations that propagate. But behind the horizon, this time becomes imaginary. In a simple model, it is… Expand
