Casimir energy of the universe and new regularization of higher dimensional quantum field theories

Casimir energy is calculated for the 5D electromagnetism and 5D scalar theory in the warped geometry. It is compared with the flat case. A new regularization, called sphere lattice regularization, is

Field quantization in 5D space-time with Z(2)-parity and position/momentum propagator

Field quantization in 5D flat and warped space-times with Z{sub 2} parity is comparatively examined. We carefully and closely derive 5D position/momentum propagators. Their characteristic behaviors

General axisymmetric solutions and self-tuning in 6D chiral gauged supergravity

We re-examine the properties of the axially-symmetric solutions to chiral gauged 6D supergravity, recently found in refs. [12] and [13]. Ref. [12] finds the most general solutions having two



Renormalization Using Domain Wall Regularization

We formulate the renormalization procedure using the domain wall regularization that is based on the heat-kernel method. The quantum effects of both fermions and bosons (gauge fields) are taken into

Quantum dynamics of Kaluza-Klein theories

Some of the quantum properties of Kaluza-Klein theories are studied. The classical features of these theories are reviewed, and the quantization of the gravitational field in an arbitrary number of

Fermions in Kaluza-Klein and Randall-Sundrum theories

The Kaluza-Klein theory and Randall-Sundrum theory are examined comparatively, with focus on the behavior of the five dimensional (Dirac) fermion in the dimensional reduction to four dimensions. They

Transmission of supersymmetry breaking from a four-dimensional boundary

In the strong-coupling limit of the heterotic string theory constructed by Ho{hacek r}ava and Witten, an 11-dimensional supergravity theory is coupled to matter multiplets confined to 10-dimensional


Contrary to the situation which holds for the canonical theory described in the first paper of this series, there exists at present no tractable pure operator language on which to base a manifestly

Temperature in Fermion Systems and the Chiral Fermion Determinant

We give an interpretation to the issue of the chiral determinant in the heat-kernel approach. The extra dimension (fifth dimension) is interpreted as (inverse) temperature. The (1+4)-dimensional

Supersymmetry in singular spaces

We discuss supersymmetry in spaces with a boundary, i.e. singular spaces. In particular, we discuss the situation in ten and five dimensions. In both these cases we review the construction of
