Heat-kernels and functional determinants on the generalized cone

  title={Heat-kernels and functional determinants on the generalized cone},
  author={Michael Bordag and Klaus Kirsten},
We consider zeta functions and heat-kernel expansions on the bounded, generalized cone in arbitrary dimensions using an improved calculational technique. The specific case of a global monopole is analysed in detail and some restrictions thereby placed on the A5/2 coefficient. The computation of functional determinants is also addressed. General formulas are given and known results are incidentally, and rapidly, reproduced. PACS number(s): 02.30.-f
