Generalized Schwinger-DeWitt technique in gauge theories and quantum gravity

The thing includes a systematic presentation of the covariant diagrammatic method for the potent motion in gauge theories. The Schwinger-DeWitt process is generalized and switched over right into a instrument for the calculation of any covariant loop graphs within the potent motion. particularly, this system is prolonged to nonminimal yet causal operators of any order.

Open Quantum Systems II: The Markovian Approach

Knowing dissipative dynamics of open quantum platforms continues to be a problem in mathematical physics. This challenge is suitable in quite a few parts of basic and utilized physics. From a mathematical standpoint, it consists of a wide physique of information. major development within the knowing of such platforms has been made over the last decade.

121). 143) can also be constructed. 174)]. Hence, the corresponding dynamical variables of the medium must be included in the quantization scheme, which implies extension of the Hilbert space. For the sake of transparency let us first restrict our attention to the case when the dielectric medium is the only matter that is present. 170) for ρ = j = 0. Let us again restrict our attention to 23) Note that with respect to the integration measure ε (r)d3 r in the definition of scalar products, the differential operator ε−1 (r)∇ × ∇× is Hermitian.

123). 4) as ˙ ( r) . 126), the terms P˙ A and ∇ × M A are also called polarization and magnetization currents respectively. 15) for the charge and current densities, respectively, and using, e. 1 The multipolar-coupling Lagrangian The total derivative with respect to time of a function of the generalized coordinates can of course be added to the Lagrangian L of a system to obtain a new Lagrangian L , which yields the same equations of motion and is therefore fully equivalent to the old Lagrangian.

Obviously, the Hamiltonian of the composed system can be given in the form of Hˆ = d3 r ∞ 0 dω h¯ ω fˆ † (r, ω )fˆ(r, ω ). c. c. 46) (Apˆ and −ε 0 Eˆ are respectively the transverse part and pendix B). Note that Π the longitudinal part of a common vector field, and Eˆ can be attributed to a ˆ scalar potential V, −∇Vˆ (r) = Eˆ (r). 55). Clearly, the associated mode operators do not evolve freely, because of the interaction with the medium. 219) [together with Eq. 2 The minimal-coupling Hamiltonian When additional charged particles are present, then the interaction of the particles with the medium-assisted electromagnetic field can be described by the 25) Note that G ⊥( ) (r, r , ω ) = d3 s δ ⊥( ) (r − s) G (s, r , ω ).
