Finite Temperature Schwinger Model with Chirality Breaking Boundary Conditions

Abstract TheNf-Flavour Schwinger Model on a finite space 0⩽x1⩽Land subject to bag-type boundary-conditions atx1=0 andx1=Lis solved at finite temperatureT=1/β. The boundary conditions depend on a real

Smeared heat-kernel coefficients on the ball and generalized cone

We consider smeared zeta functions and heat-kernel coefficients on the bounded, generalized cone in arbitrary dimensions. The specific case of a ball is analyzed in detail and used to restrict the

Polyakov formulas for conical singularities in two dimensions

We investigate the zeta-regularized determinant and its variation in the presence of conical singularities, boundaries, and corners. For surfaces with isolated conical singularities which may also

Heat kernel coefficients of the Laplace operator on the D‐dimensional ball

We present a very quick and powerful method for the calculation of heat kernel coefficients. It makes use of rather common ideas, as integral representations of the spectral sum, Mellin transforms,

The a(3/2) heat kernel coefficient for oblique boundary conditions

We present a method for the calculation of the a3/2 heat kernel coefficient of the heat operator trace for a partial differential operator of Laplace type on a compact Riemannian manifold with

Analytic Surgery of the Zeta Function

In this paper we study the asymptotic behavior (in the sense of meromorphic functions) of the zeta function of a Laplace-type operator on a closed manifold when the underlying manifold is stretched



Conformal invariance, the central charge, and universal finite-size amplitudes at criticality.

We show that for conformally invariant two-dimensional systems, the amplitude of the finite-size corrections to the free energy of an infinitely long strip of width L at criticality is linearly

Universal Term in the Free Energy at a Critical Point and the Conformal Anomaly

We show that the leading finite-size correction to lnZ for a two-dimensional system at a conformally invariant critical point on a strip of length L, width β (β L ), is (π/6) c ( L /β), where c is

Conformal transformations and the effective action in the presence of boundaries

The conformal properties of the heat kernel expansion are used to determine the local form of the coefficients in a manifold with boundary. The conformal transformation of the effective action is

On the Functional Calculus of Pseudo-Differential Boundary Problems

The lecture falls in three parts. First we give an introduction to the calculus of pseudo-differential boundary value problems, that generalize the boundary problems for differential operators. A

A few insights into the nature of classical and quantum gravity via null-strut calculus

Null-strut calculus is a newly developed description of geometrodynamics. It provides a discrete and geometric description of the dynamic evolution or spacelike 3-geometries. Each 3-geometry is
