Renormalization-group improved effective potential for gauge theories in curved spacetime

Abstract

The renormalization-group improved effective potential for an arbitrary renormalizable massless gauge theory in curved spacetime is found, thus generalizing Coleman-Weinberg’s approach corresponding to flat space. Some explicit examples are considered, among them: λφ theory, scalar electrodynamics, the asymptotically-free SU(2) gauge model, and the SU(5… (More)
