Effective Lagrangian and the back-reaction problem in a self-interacting O(N) scalar theory in curved spacetime.

Abstract

A derivation of the one-loop effective Lagrangian in the self-interacting O(N) scalar theory, in slowly varying gravitational fields, is presented (using ζ-regularization and heat-kernel techniques).
