    • Closed Path Approach to Casimir Effect in Rectangular Cavities and Pistons 

      Liu, Zhonghai (2010-07-14)
      We study thoroughly Casimir energy and Casimir force in a rectangular cavity and piston with various boundary conditions, for both scalar field and electromagnetic (EM) field. Using the cylinder kernel approach, we find ...
    • Static, cylindrical symmetry in general relativity and vacuum energy 

      Trendafilova, Cynthia (2011-08-08)
      In the first section of my research, in analogy with the standard derivation of the spherically symmetric Schwarzschild solution of the Einstein field equations, I find all static, cylindrically symmetric solutions of the ...
    • The Soft Wall Model of the Casimir Effect 

      Murray, Steven Wallace (2015-04-13)
      In this paper, we examine the Casimir interaction between a scalar field and a boundary analogous to a conducting wall with some small but finite skin depth to electromagnetic radiation with the goal of calculating the ...
    • The Soft Wall Model of the Casimir Effect 

      Whisler, Colin M. (2014-08-13)
      In this paper, we examine the Casimir interaction between a scalar field and a boundary analogous to a conducting wall with some small but finite skin depth to electromagnetic radiation with the goal of calculating the ...
    • Vacuum energy for static, cylindrically symmetric systems 

      Trendafilova, Cynthia (2012-04-18)
      In my previous thesis for the Undergraduate Research Scholars program I have calculated, both in terms of the scalar field and in terms of the cylinder kernel, the components of the stress-energy tensor of a quantized ...
