Title: Boundary conditions as mass generation mechanism for real scalar fields
Issue Date: 1-Jun-2013
Publisher: Sociedade Brasileira de Física
Description: We consider the effects of homogeneous Dirichlet's boundary conditions on two infinite parallel plane surfaces separated by some small distance a. We find that although spontaneous symmetry breaking does not occur for the theory of a massless, quartically self-interacting real scalar field, the theory becomes a theory of a massive scalar field.
