In this chapter, we present an analytical method to calculate the scattering matrix (which rules mode-mixing on the time-dependent curved spacetime) in all possible kinematic configurations identified in Chap.  3. That is, for all regimes of spacetime curvature than may be created in analogue gravity systems. We then calculate spectra of emission from the vacuum and focus our attention on analogue black hole emission.
