  journal={Physical Review D},
The solutions of many issues, of the ongoing eorts to make deformed graphene a tabletop quantum eld theory in curved spacetimes, are presented. A detailed explanation of the special features of curved spacetimes, originating from embedding portions of the Lobachevsky plane into R 3 , is given, and the special role of coordinates for the physical realizations in graphene, is explicitly shown, in general, and for various examples. The Rindler spacetime is reobtained, with new important dierences… 
Exploring event horizons and Hawking radiation through deformed graphene membranes
Analogue gravitational systems are becoming an increasing popular way of studying the behaviour of quantum systems in curved spacetime. Setups based on ultracold quantum gases in particular, have
Analog hep-th, on Dirac materials and in general
The work of our group on reproducing scenarios of high energy theoretical physics on Dirac materials, like graphene, is illustrated. The main goal of this paper is to explain how versatile these
Torsion in quantum field theory through time-loops on Dirac materials
Assuming dislocations could be meaningfully described by torsion, we propose here a scenario based on the role of time in the low-energy regime of two-dimensional Dirac materials, for which coupling
Quasinormal modes of BTZ black hole and Hawking‐like radiation in graphene
The Bañados‐Teitelboim‐Zanelli (BTZ) black hole model corresponds to a solution of (2+1)‐dimensional Einstein gravity with negative cosmological constant, and by a conformal rescaling its metric can
Large-scale correction and thermal properties of holographic dual background of an adaptive graphene model
In this paper, we consider the particle on curved graphene space-time. In that case, we calculate the geometric form of potential which is known as Gaussian function. Here, we introduce the metric
Quantum charged spinning massless particles in 2 + 1 dimensions
Motivated by the conduction properties of graphene discovered and studied in the last decades, we consider the quantum dynamics of a massless, charged, spin 1/2 relativistic particle in three
Extended Supersymmetry in Gapped and Superconducting Graphene
In view of the many quantum field theoretical descriptions of graphene in $2+1$ dimensions, we present another field theoretical feature of graphene, in the presence of defects. Particularly, we
Remarks on the Chern-Simons photon term in the QED description of graphene
We revisit the Coleman-Hill theorem in the context of reduced planar QED. Using the global U(1) Ward identity for this nonlocal but still gauge-invariant theory, we can confirm that the topological


Quantum Fields in Curved Space
This book presents a comprehensive review of the subject of gravitational effects in quantum field theory. Although the treatment is general, special emphasis is given to the Hawking black hole
Alternative Symmetries in Quantum Field Theory and Gravity
A general, incomplete and partisan overview of various areas of the theoretical investigation is presented. Most of this activity stems from the search for physics beyond quantum field theory and
The gauge/gravity duality
In this chapter we explain the gauge/gravity duality [1–3], which is a motivation for studying black hole solutions in various numbers of dimensions. The gauge/gravity duality is an equality between

    Living reviews in relativity
  • 1998
Three major areas of research are reviewed: gauge-theoretic approaches, both in a path-integral and a Hamiltonian formulation; quantum Regge calculus; and the method of dynamical triangulations, confining attention to work that is strictly four-dimensional, strictly discrete, and strictly quantum in nature.
Black hole boundaries
Classical black holes and event horizons are highly nonlocal objects, defined in relation to the causal past of future null infinity. Alternative, quasilocal characterizations of black holes are
A comprehensive introduction to differential geometry
Spivak's Comprehensive introduction takes as its theme the classical roots of contemporary differential geometry. Spivak explains his Main Premise (my term) as follows: "in order for an introduction
Geometry of surfaces
This text intends to provide the student with the knowledge of a geometry of greater scope thatn the classical geometry taught today, which is no longer an adequate basis for mathematics of physics,
Graphene synthesis and band gap opening.
This review summarizes recent developments in the synthesis methods for graphene, and summarizes the developments in graphene nanoribbon synthesis and methods to open band gap in graphene, in addition to pointing out a direction for future research and developments.

THE well-known works of Darboux and Bianchi are so excellent, each in its own way, that one might be inclined to doubt whether another text-book on the subject was really required—at least, for the
