The Elliptic Interpretation of Black Holes and Quantum Mechanics
- 77 Downloads
Preamble. The lectures as delivered contained an elementary introduction to the classical theory of black holes together with an account of Hawking’s original derivation of the thermal emission from black holes in the quantum theory. I also described what is here called the “elliptic interpretation” partly because of its possible relevance to the lectures of Professor ’t Hooft. It seemed to me that there was little point in repeating in the written version what is rather standard material so I have decided to give a rather more detailed account of the elliptic interpretation and refer the reader to the original literature [1, 2] for the elementary material.
