Finite-temperature scalar fields and the cosmological constant in an Einstein universe

Abstract

We study the back reaction effect of massless minimally couupled scalar field at finite temperatures in the background of Einstein universe. Substituting for the vacuum expectation value of the components of the energy-momentum tensor on the RHS of the Einstein equation, we deduce a relationship between the radius of the universe and its temperature.
