Path integral methods are used to calculate the (normal and
transverse) Casimir forces between two deformed metallic plates,
as well as dynamic consequences of their motion. Variation of
normal force with the wavelength of deformation is an example of the non-trivial geometry dependence of the Casimir effect, and its distinction to pairwise additive forces.
