In this paper, we study the vacuum quantum fluctuations of an uncharged massive scalar field in the Schwarzschild background and analyze its main physical effects at zero temperature. The procedure consists of calculating the energy eigenvalues starting from the exact solutions recently found for the dynamics of that field, considering the regime in which the particle is not absorbed by the black hole. From this result, we obtain the vacuum energy for the field, taking into account the… CONTINUE READING
