What's known about QFT (or even QM) on fixed, but non-Minkowski spacetimes such as the cosmological Robertson-Walker background defined by:
$ ds^2 = c^2 dt^2 - a(t)^2 * (dx^2 + dy^2 + dz^2) $
By fixed I mean that the dynamics of the system does not influnce the spacetime, ie. $a(t)$ is a fixed function such as $exp(t)$ for a lambda dominated Universe.
Any non-stringy references would be appreciated.
