Comment on: "The Casimir force on a piston in the spacetime with extra compactified dimensions" [Phys. Lett. B 668 (2008) 72] Academic Article uri icon


  • We offer a clarification of the significance of the indicated paper of H. Cheng. Cheng's conclusions about the attractive nature of Casimir forces between parallel plates are valid beyond the particular model in which he derived them; they are likely to be relevant to other recent literature on the effects of hidden dimensions on Casimir forces. 2008 Elsevier B.V.
