Stationary and nonstationary scalar vacuum field noises
Abstract
If stationary, the spectrum of vacuum field noise (VFN) is an important ingredient to get information about the curvature invariants of classical worldlines (relativistic classical trajectories). For scalar quantum field vacua there are six stationary cases as shown by Letaw some time ago, these are reviewed here. However, the nonstationary vacuum noises are not out of reach and can be processed by a few mathematical methods which I briefly comment on. Since the information about the kinematical curvature invariants of the worldlines is of radiometric origin, hints are given on a more useful application to radiation and beam radiometric standards at relativistic energies
