A Quantum Implementation of the Cosmic Censorship Conjecture

Conference paper

Abstract

We review some aspects of the quantum field theory of a conformally coupled scalar field on the singular background obtained in the massless limit of a class of toroidal black holes. The stress-tensor and its back reaction on the metric are computed, using point-splitting regularization, in the cases of transparent, Neumann and Dirichlet boundary conditions. We find that the quantum fluctuations generate an event horizon which hides the singularity. The resulting object can be interpreted as a long-lived remnant. We discuss the relevance of this result in the context of the cosmic censorship conjecture, and in connection to the end point of the quantum evaporation process.
