Title: Negativity of electromagnetic response in de Sitter space
This talk will be dedicated to show recent activities on the topic. In the first half of the talk, I explain how negative, i.e. unstable, electromagnetic responses have been revealed. Though this phenomenon was repeatedly reported by several groups recently [1], neither physical origin or intellectual interpretation of the phenomenon have been explicitly given up to the present.
The rest of my talk involve this point. Inspired by a relevant negative response phenomenon in a specific ferroelectric matter [2], I recognized importance of spontaneous symmetry breaking and the effective action or potential of the system. A variation of renormalization group technique, which is called non-perturbative renormalization group (NPRG) [3], can be used for evaluation of the effective action. I re-developed a gauge-invariant formulation of flow equation for scalar QED effective action in curved spacetime. In this formalism, one introduces an IR cutoff scale. As a result, undesirable behavior of the IR modes in de Sitter spacetime can be virtually suppressed [4]. The solution for the flow equation has not been found yet though, I will explain about construction of the gauge-invariant flow equation.
