报告摘要: Since its introduction into physics through the discussion of vacuum zero point quantum fluctuation, the Casimir force has been generalized to cover a wide spectrum of topics related to fluctuations whose origins could be quantum/thermal, equilibrium/non-equilibrium. In this talk, I will start with a short survey on the history of Casimir physics, then move on to a discussion of our recent work which, based on a method developed by us to exactly evaluating the Euclidean path integrals involving higher derivative Lagrangians, we generalized the critical Casimir force in the Landau-Ginzburg-Wilson theory to the context of the Brazovskii-type field theories.
