- Published 1998

The renormalised value of 〈φ2〉 is calculated for a massless, conformally coupled scalar field in the Hartle-Hawking vacuum state. This calculation is a first step towards the calculation of the gravitational back reaction of the field in a black cosmic string spacetime which is asymptotically anti-DeSitter and possesses a non constant dilaton field. It is… CONTINUE READING
