Stress tensor fluctuations in de Sitter spacetime
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Joan Camps.
In this talk I will discuss general properties of the stress tensor two-point function of a quantum field in a maximally symmetric spacetime. Such a two-point function tells us about how the metric fluctuations are affected by the presence of the field. I will also give explicit results for non-self-interacting scalar fields in de Sitter spacetime, and comment on the subtleties arising in the massless case.
