BEYOND SEMICLASSICAL GRAVITY: QUANTUM STRESS TENSOR FLUCTUATIONS IN THE VACUUM

Schiappacasse, Enrico.

2018

Description
  • Abstract: Large vacuum fluctuations of a quantum stress tensor can be described by the asymptotic behavior of its probability distribution. Here we focus on stress tensor operators which have been averaged with a sampling function in time. The Minkowski vacuum state is not an eigenstate of the time-averaged operator, but can be expanded in terms of its eigenstates. We calculate the probability dis... read more
