Title: Boundary one-point function, Casimir energy and boundary state formalism in D+1 dimensional QFT

Abstract: I present a paper by Bajnok, Palla & Takács (arXiv:hep-th/0611176) in which they develop the boundary state formalism in a general D+1 dimensional QFT. Applying the boundary state formalism they relate various novel boundary effects: One-point functions, reflection factors and Casimir energy.
