Scalar field oscillations contributing to dark energy
MetadataShow full item record
We use action-angle variables to describe the basic physics of coherent scalar field oscillations in the expanding universe. These analytical mechanics methods have some advantages, like the identification of adiabatic invariants. As an application, we show some instances of potentials leading to equations of state with p < =3, thus contributing to the dark energy that causes the observed acceleration of the universe

Phase change material selection for two innovative compact energy storage systems in residential buildings Zsembinszki, Gabriel; Gasia, Jaume; Oró Prim, Eduard; Cabeza, Luisa F. (Ediciones de la Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, 2019)Within the framework of HYBUILD, an EU Horizon 2020-funded project, two innovative compact hybrid electrical/thermal storage systems for stand-alone and district connected residential buildings will be developed and ...
Massó, Eduard; Rota, Francesc; Zsembinszki, Gabriel (American Physical Society, 2004)We consider a model with a small explicit breaking of a global symmetry, as suggested by gravitational arguments. Our model has one scalar field transforming under a nonanomalous U 1 symmetry, and coupled to matter and ...
Massó, Eduard; Rota, Francesc; Zsembinszki, Gabriel (American Physical Society, 2002)We reanalyze the conditions under which we have a primordial thermal population of axions. We extend a previous study and take into account processes involving gluons and quarks. We conclude that if the PecceiQuinn scale ...
