Abstract

A possible way to obtain the adiabatic regularized quantum stress-energy tensor in a background curved spacetime is developed within the method of path-integral quantization. As an illustration, we study the mode of a massive scalar field with arbitrary curvature coupling to the inhomogeneous conformally flat spacetime. The results so obtained are useful to investigate the back-reaction effects of a quantized field in the early Universe with an inhomogeneity.
