  • The vacuum energy density or free energy of a free charged Bose gas at non-zero densities is studied in the context of the debate about Multiplicative Anomalies. Some zeta-function regularised calculations of the free energy in the literature are reexamined, clarified and extended. A range of apparently distinct answers can obtained. Equivalent dimensional regularisation results are also presented for comparison. I conclude that operator ordering and normal ordering are not responsible for… CONTINUE READING
