Quantum Black Holes

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 150)


The conventional way to set up a decent looking theory for interacting elementary particles is to take some set of classical fields, satisfying simple, polynomial field equations. These equations should be compatible with an extremum principle: they are taken to be the Euler-Lagrange equations generated by some Lagrange function L of the fields. One then “quantizes” the theory by replacing Poisson brackets by commutators.
