Title: Quantization of massive scalar fields over static black string backgrounds

Abstract

The renormalized mean value of the corresponding components of the energy-momentum tensor for massive scalar fields coupled to an arbitrary gravitational field configuration having cylindrical symmetry are analytically evaluated using the Schwinger-DeWitt approximation, up to second order in the inverse mass value. The general results are employed to explicitly derive compact analytical expressions for the energy-momentum tensor in the particular background of the black-string space-time. In the case of the black string considered in this work, we prove that a violation of the weak energy condition occurs at the horizon of the space-time for values of the coupling constant, which include as particular cases the most interesting of minimal and conformal coupling.
