A Counterexample to the Quantum Interest Conjecture


  •  Dan Solomon    

Abstract

According to the quantum interest conjecture any negative energy pulse must be associated with a positive energy pulse of greater magnitude than that of the negative energy pulse. In this paper we will demonstrate a counter-example to this conjecture. We will show that, for a massless scalar field in 1-1D space-time, it is possible to generate an “isolated” negative energy pulse.
