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

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 ...

(MDPI, 2020)The increasing penetration of renewable energy has led electrical energy storage systems to have a key role in balancing and increasing the e ciency of the grid. Liquid air energy storage (LAES) is a promising technology, ...
