Abstract

Although widely studied for D = 4, the vacuum polarization in higher dimensional spacetimes doesn't usually get much attention due to the high complexity of the countertems involved in the regularization procedure. We fully studied the case of a 5-dimensional charged black hole, and obtained a renormalized quantity. The regularity of the result was explicitly proven by direct calculation of the counterterms. Although quantum calculations with higher dimensional black holes are increasing, there are still a lot of physical aspects to be understood.
