The Hamilton Operator and Quantum Vacuum for Nonconformal Scalar Fields in the Homogeneous and Isotropic Space
The diagonalization of the metrical and canonical Hamilton operators of a scalar field with an arbitrary coupling, with a curvature in N-dimensional homogeneous isotropic space is considered in this paper. The energy spectrum of the corresponding quasiparticles is obtained and then the modified energy-momentum tensor is constructed; the latter coincides with the metrical energy-momentum tensor for conformal scalar field. Under the diagonalization of corresponding Hamilton operator the energies of relevant particles of a nonconformal field are equal to the oscillator frequencies, and the density of such particles created in a nonstationary metric is finite. It is shown that the modified Hamilton operator can be constructed as a canonical Hamilton operator under the special choice of variables.
