Title: ON THE THERMODYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF THE QUANTUM VACUUM
Author: LIMA, JAS
MAIA, A
Abstract: Several thermodynamic relations for the vacuum state have been derived by assuming that it behaves like a relativistic perfect simple fluid. Unlike the usual fluids, the vacuum becomes hotter when it undergoes an adiabatic expansion (TV-1 = const). A new Lorentz-invariant spectrum for the vacuum is also suggested which is compatible with the usual equation of state p = -rho and the other thermodynamic constraints. Some cosmological consequences of these results have also been discussed.
