Abstract

Uses the zeta -function regularization method to evaluate the finite temperature 1-loop effective potential for a phi 4 theory in the Godel spacetime. It is used to study the effects of temperature and curvature coupling on the cosmological phase transition in the rotational spacetime. From the results the critical temperature of symmetry restoration, which is a function of curvature coupling and magnitude of spacetime rotation, can be determined.
