We consider the stochastic quantization method for scalar fields defined in a curved manifold and also in a flat spacetime with event horizon. The two-point function associated with a massive self-interacting scalar field is evaluated, up to the first-order level in the coupling constant λ, for the case of an Einstein and also a Rindler Euclidean metric, respectively. Its value for the asymptotic limit of the Markov parameter τ → ∞ is exhibited. The divergences therein are taken care of by…

Stochastic quantization of scalar fields in de Sitter spacetime

The covariant stochastic regularization is discussed, which renders the one-loop two-point correlation function finite in the de Sitter Euclidean metric.

Stochastic quantization for complex actions

We use the stochastic quantization method to study systems with complex valued path integral weights. We assume a Langevin equation with a memory kernel and Einstein’s relations with colored noise.

A comment on Schwinger functions in Euclidean Rindler space

In this paper, we investigate the generalization to d dimensions and non-massive as well as massive scalar fields of two results in Euclidean field theory for the Wick-rotated Rindler space. Firstly,


We consider a pointlike two-level system undergoing uniformly accelerated motion. We evaluate the transition probability rate of this system coupled to a massless scalar field near a fluctuating

Métodos perturbativos e não-perturbativos em teoria quântica de campos no espaço-tempo curvo

Stochastic quantization of real-time thermal field theory

We use the stochastic quantization method to obtain the free scalar propagator of a finite temperature field theory formulated in the Minkowski space-time. First, we use the Markovian stochastic

It is found that the adiabatic regularized quantum stress-energy tensor for matter in any background spacetime can be obtained in the framework of stochastic quantization and are useful in formulating the semiclassical theory of gravity and in the numerical study of the back-reaction effects of quantized fields in inhomogeneous spacetimes.

Quantum Field Theory in Curved Spacetime

These lectures deal with selected aspects of quantum field theory in curved spacetime including the following topics: (1) Quantization of fields on a curved background, particle creation by

Nonuniqueness of Canonical Field Quantization in Riemannian Space-Time

We point out and discuss an ambiguity which arises in the quantum theory of fields when the background metric is not explicitly Minkowskian-in other words, when an external gravitational field, real

Quantum field theory on incomplete manifolds

A theory of the scalar quantum field on static manifolds is constructed using the language of Feynman Green’s functions. By means of examples in which the manifolds are parts of Minkowski space, we

By taking the formal equilibrium limit of the stochastic metric a one-parameter family of covariant path-integral measures for general relativity is obtained and it is shown that a consistent Stochastic perturbation theory gives rise to a new type of diagram containing ''stochastic vertices.
