Title: The effect of generalized uncertainty principle on square well, a case study

Abstract

According to a special case (β = 0) of the generalized uncertainty relation we derive the energy eigenvalues of the infinite potential well. It is shown that the obtained energy levels are different from the usual result with some correction terms. And the correction terms of the energy eigenvalues are independent of other parameters except α. But the eigenstates will depend on another two parameters besides α.

  • We examine effects of the Generalized Uncertainty Principle, predicted by various theories of quantum gravity to replace the Heisenberg's uncertainty principle near the Planck scale, on post inflation preheating in cosmology, and show that it can predict either an increase or a decrease in parametric resonance and a corresponding change in particle production. Possible implications are considered.
  • We derive from a dynamical symmetry property that the linear and nonlinear Schrodinger equations with harmonic potential possess an infinite string of shape-preserving coherent wave-packet states with classical motion. Unlike the Schroedinger state with ..delta..x..delta..p = h/2, the uncertainty product can be arbitrarily large for these states showing that classical motion is not necessarily linked with minimum uncertainty. We obtain a generalization of Sudarshan's diagonal coherent-state representation in terms of these states.
  • Recently, there has been much attention devoted to resolving the quantum corrections to the Bekenstein-Hawking (black hole) entropy. In particular, many researchers have expressed a vested interest in fixing the coefficient of the subleading logarithmic term. In the current paper, we are able to make some degree of progress in this direction by utilizing the generalized uncertainty principle (GUP). Notably, the GUP reduces to the conventional Heisenberg relation in situations of weak gravity but transcends it when gravitational effects can no longer be ignored. Ultimately, we formulate the quantum-corrected entropy in terms of an expansion that is consistent with allmore » previous findings. Moreover, we demonstrate that the logarithmic prefactor (indeed, any coefficient of the expansion) can be expressed in terms of a single parameter that should be determinable via the fundamental theory.« less
  • In this Letter, we compute the corrections to the Cardy-Verlinde formula of the d-dimensional Schwarzschild black hole. These corrections stem from the generalized uncertainty principle. Then we show one can take into account the generalized uncertainty principle corrections of the Cardy-Verlinde entropy formula by just redefining the Virasoro operator L{sub 0} and the central charge c.
