On Hawking/Unruh Process: Where does the Radiation Come from?

Full-Text   Cite this paper   Add to My Lib


The energy source of the radiation in Unruh/Hawking process is investigated with emphasis on the particle number definition based on conservation laws. It has been shown that the particle radiation is not the result of pair creation by the gravitational force, but the result of difference in the conservation laws to define the particle number. The origin of the radiated energy in the distant future corresponds to the zero point oscillations with infinitely large wave numbers. This result implies the need of reconsideration on the scenario of black hole evaporation.
