  • Quantum field theory violates all the classical energy conditions of general relativity. Nonetheless, it turns out that quantum field theories satisfy remnants of the classical energy conditions, known as Quantum Energy Inequalities (QEIs), that have been developed by various authors since the original pioneering work of Ford in 1978. These notes provide an introduction to QEIs and also to some of the techniques of quantum field theory in curved spacetime (particularly, the use of microlocal… CONTINUE READING
