...on the off chance anyone knows this, I'm trying to get from:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]V=\frac{1}{2A}Tr Log(\frac{-\Box}{\mu^2})[/tex]

to

[tex]V=\frac{(-1)^{\eta-1}}{4\pi^\eta\eta!}\frac{\pi}{L}^{D-1}\zeta'(1-D)[/tex]

I know this is a shot in the dark, but in case anyone has experience.

The paper I'm reading explains 'it is easy to show that' to get to the seconds equation !! I hate that. The paper also has a reference...the reference is Birrel and Davies, great I thought, I have that book, the reference is for p340, which takes me to the Index !!! lol.

Anyway, I guess the key is figuring how the trace of the log of the box operator gives me the derivative of the zeta function.

Anyone??
