Scalar and fermionic Unruh Otto engines
/ Gray, Finnian ; Mann, Robert
We investigate the behaviour of quantum heat engines, in which a qubit is put through the quantum equivalent of the Otto cycle and the heat reservoirs are due to the Unruh effect. [...]

Holographic thermodynamics of accelerating black holes
/ Anabalón, Andrés ; Appels, Michael ; Gregory, Ruth ; Kubizňák, David ; et al
We present a careful study of accelerating black holes in antide Sitter spacetime, formulating the thermodynamics and resolving discrepancies that have appeared in previous investigations of the topic. [...]

Transition to lightlike trajectories in thin shell dynamics
/ Mann, Robert B. ; Nagle, Ian ; Terno, Daniel R.
It was recently shown that a massive thin shell that is sandwiched between a flat interior and an exterior geometry given by the outgoing Vaidya metric becomes null in a finite proper time. [...]

Potential tests of the generalized uncertainty principle in the advanced LIGO experiment
/ Bosso, Pasquale ; Das, Saurya ; Mann, Robert B.
The generalized uncertainty principle and a minimum measurable length arise in various theories of gravity and predict Planckscale modifications of the canonical positionmomentum commutation relation. [...]

Universal formula for the holographic speed of sound
/ Anabalón, Andrés ; Andrade, Tomás ; Astefanesei, Dumitru ; Mann, Robert
We consider planar hairy black holes in five dimensions with a real scalar field in the Breitenlohner–Freedman window and derive a universal formula for the holographic speed of sound for any mixed boundary conditions of the scalar field. [...]

Breakdown of the equal area law for holographic entanglement entropy
/ McCarthy, Fiona ; Kubizňák, David ; Mann, Robert
