Zero-point energy in spheroidal geometries

Preprint English OPEN
Kitson, A. R.; Signal, A. I.;

We study the zero-point energy of a massless scalar field subject to spheroidal boundary conditions. Using the zeta-function method, the zero-point energy is evaluated for small ellipticity. Axially symmetric vector fields are also considered. The results are interprete... View more
