The Casimir energy for massless scalar field which satisfies periodic boundary conditions in two-dimensional domain wall background is calculated by making use of general properties of renormalized stress-tensor. The line element of domain wall is time dependent, the trace anomaly which is the nonvanishing Tμμ for a conformally invariant field after renormalization, represent the back reaction of the dynamical Casimir effect.

The stress–tensor of a massless scalar field satisfying Robin boundary conditions on two one-dimensional wall in two-dimensional Schwarzschild background is calculated. We show that vacuum

Gauge and gravitational anomalies and Hawking radiation of rotating BTZ black holes

In this paper we obtain the flux of Hawking radiation from rotating BTZ black holes from the gauge and gravitational anomalies point of view. Then we show that the gauge and gravitational anomaly in

Quantum Harmonic Oscillator and Nonstationary Casimir Effect

We consider the relations between the theory of quantum nonstationary damped oscillator and nonstationary Casimir effect in view of the problem of photon creation from vacuum inside the cavity with



Casimir Effect, Hawking Radiation and Trace Anomaly

The Casimir energy for massless scalar field of two parallel conductor, in two dimensional Schwarzchild black hole background, with Dirichlet boundary conditions is calculated by making use of

Two observers calculate the trace anomaly

We adapt a calculation due to Massacand and Schmid to the coordinate-independent definition of time and vacuum given by Capri and Roy in order to compute the trace anomaly for a massless scalar field

Stress tensors and their trace anomalies in conformally flat space-time

Stress-energy tensors of massless fields propagating in curved space-times which are conformally flat are determined entirely from their trace anomalies. This calculation utilizes the integrability

Effective theoretical approach to back reaction of the dynamical Casimir effect in 1 + 1 dimensions

We present an approach to studying the Casimir effects by means of the effective theory. An essential point of our approach is replacing the mirror separation into the size of space S^1 in the

Trace Anomalies and the Hawking Effect

The general spherically symmetric, static solution of ∇νTμν = 0 in the exterior Schwarzschild metric is expressed in terms of two integration constants and two arbitrary functions, one of which is

The Casimir Effect: Physical Manifestations of Zero-Point Energy

Zero-point fluctuations in quantum fields give rise to observable forces between material bodies, the so-called Casimir forces. In these lectures I present the theory of the Casimir effect, primarily

Regularization, renormalization, and covariant geodesic point separation

One of the techniques used in quantum field theory in curved space-times to eliminate divergences in the vacuum expectation value of the stress tensor for quantum fields propagating on a classical
