Resumen:
We consider a Dirac field in 2+1 Euclidean dimensions, in the presence of a linear domain wall defect in its mass, and a constant electromagnetic field. We evaluate the exact fermionic determinant for the situation where the defect is assumed to be rectilinear, static, and the gauge field is minimally coupled to the fermions. We discuss the dependence of the result on the (unique) independent geometrical parameter of this system, namely, the relative orientation of the wall and the direction of the external field. We apply the result for the determinant to the evaluation of the vacuum energy.
