@article{Saharian2004CASIMIRDF, title={CASIMIR DENSITIES FOR TWO CONCENTRIC SPHERICAL SHELLS IN THE GLOBAL MONOPOLE SPACE–TIME}, author={A. A. Saharian and M. R. Setare}, journal={International Journal of Modern Physics A}, year={2004}, volume={19}, pages={4301-4321} }

The quantum vacuum effects are investigated for a massive scalar field with general curvature coupling and obeying the Robin boundary conditions given on two concentric spherical shells with radii a and b in the (D+1)-dimensional global monopole background. The expressions are derived for the Wightman function, the vacuum expectation values of the field square, the vacuum energy density, radial and azimuthal stress components in the region between the shells. A regularization procedure is…
