A Primer for Black Hole Quantum Physics

A Primer for Black Hole Quantum Physics
by R. Brout, S. Massar, R. Parentani, P. Spindel

Publisher: arXiv 2007
Number of pages: 178

Description:
The mechanisms which give rise to Hawking radiation are revealed by analyzing in detail pair production in the presence of horizons. In preparation for the black hole problem, three preparatory problems are dwelt with at length: pair production in an external electric field, thermalization of a uniformly accelerated detector and accelerated mirrors. In the light of these examples, the black hole evaporation problem is then presented.
