Title: Black hole evaporation in a thermalized final-state projection model

Abstract

We propose a modified version of the Horowitz-Maldacena final-state boundary condition based upon a matter-radiation thermalization hypothesis on the Black Hole interior, which translates into a particular entangled state with thermal Schmidt coefficients. We investigate the consequences of this proposal for matter entering the horizon, as described by a Canonical density matrix characterized by the matter temperature T. The emitted radiation is explicitly calculated and is shown to follow a thermal spectrum with an effective temperature T{sub eff}. We analyze the evaporation process in the quasistatic approximation, highlighting important differences in the late stages with respect to the usual semiclassical evolution, and calculate the fidelity of the emitted Hawking radiation relative to the infalling matter.

  • This paper examines various aspects of black-hole evaporation. A two-dimensional model is investigated where it is shown that using fermion-boson cancellation on the stress-energy tensor reduces the energy outflow to zero, while other noncovariant techniques give the Hawking result. A technique for replacing the collapse by boundary conditions on the past horizon is developed which retains the essential features of the collapse while eliminating some of the difficulties. This set of boundary conditions is also suggested as the most natural set for a preexistent black hole. The behavior of particle detectors under acceleration is investigated where it is shown thatmore » an accelerated detector even in flat spacetime will detect particles in the vacuum. The similarity of this case with the behavior of a detector near the black hole is brought out, and it is shown that a geodesic detector near the horizon will not see the Hawking flux of particles. Finally, the work of Berger, Chitre, Nutku, and Moncrief on scalar geons is corrected, and the spherically symmetric coupled scalar-gravitation Hamiltonian is presented in the hope that someone can apply it to the problem of black-hole evaporation.

  • We study the formation of a black hole and its subsequent evaporation in a model employing a minisuperspace approach to loop quantum gravity. In previous work the static solution was obtained and shown to be singularity-free. Here, we examine the more realistic dynamical case by generalizing the static case with the help of the Vaidya metric. We track the formation and evolution of trapped surfaces during collapse and evaporation and examine the buildup of quantum gravitationally caused stress energy preventing the formation of a singularity.
  • We study the black hole evaporation and Hawking radiation for a noncommutative charged Vaidya black hole. For this purpose, we determine a spherically symmetric charged Vaidya model and then formulate a noncommutative Reissner-Nordstroem-like solution of this model, which leads to an exact (t - r)-dependent metric. The behavior of the temporal component of this metric and the corresponding Hawking temperature are investigated. The results are shown in the form of graphs. Further, we examine the tunneling process of charged massive particles through the quantum horizon. We find that the tunneling amplitude is modified due to noncommutativity. Also, it turns outmore » that the black hole evaporates completely in the limits of large time and horizon radius. The effect of charge is to reduce the temperature from a maximum value to zero. We note that the final stage of black hole evaporation is a naked singularity.« less
  • We investigate the question of whether and how the configuration space of the reduced system is restricted by the Hamiltonian constraint in the sense of Ashtekar and Horowitz. We deal with the model spherically symmetric system which has been defined and studied in the preceding papers of this series. We find restrictions of the asymptotical configuration space which seem to forbid the evaporation of black holes. Another consequence of the restrictions is that the relevant part of any spacetime with collapse can be foliated by Cauchy hypersurfaces so that the canonical formalism is applicable without problems. We show that singularmore » apparent horizons can form, and that they are visible from the future null infinity, if the configuration space is not restricted. However, we are not able to construct the quantum field so that the results remain formal.« less
  • We describe the dynamical evolution of scalar, electromagnetic, and gravitational test fields on the interior of a Reissner-Nordstroem (spherically symmetric and electrically charged) black hole. The instability of the hole's Cauchy horizon is discussed in detail in terms of the divergences of the energy densities of the test fields as measured by a freely falling observer approaching the Cauchy horizon. The late-time development of the fields is discussed and a picture of the final state for the interior (in terms of classical fields) is developed. We conclude that the Cauchy horizon of the analytically extended Reissner-Nordstroem solution is highly unstablemore » and not a physical feature of a realistic gravitational collapse.« less
