On the Generalised Second-Law of Thermodynamics
This note will give a brief report of some work which R. Wald and I1 have done recently. We have discovered that at least one possible technique for violating the generalised second law by using black holes does not work. The reason it does not work is rather surprising in that it makes fundamental use of the physical consequences of the thermal radiation seen in the vacuum by an accelerated observer.
