The normal-form (In)dependence of the adiabatic particle definitions
- 47 Downloads
The adiabatic particle definition of Parker  has only been discussed for particular choices of the field variable and time coordinate, referred to here as the choice of a normal-form. It seems to have been implicitly assumed that the associated vacuum is independent of the normal-form chosen; we show that this is indeed the case.
