Hawking Radiation: Derivation of Black-hole Tunneling as Bekenstein-Hawking Entropy BY M. A Lateef and E.O. Oyewande (PAGES 11-20)
Sale price: $5.00


We present a mechanistic derivation of Hawking radiation, a black hole radiation, as a consequence of particle tunneling phenomenon through the event horizon of a black hole. This tunneling process radiates away the mass of the black hole (Hawking radiation), outwardly to infinity.The correction to the thermal spectrum is of precisely the form that one would expect from an underlying unitary quantum theory and this may have profound implications for the black hole information paradox.Up till now the correspondence between blackhole particle transmission coefficient and the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy has not been clearly established. This work tackles this issue and provides an alternative approach to clearly establish a correspondence between transmission coefficient of the positive energy particle and Bekenstein-Hawking entropy using appropriate relations and mathematical techniques.
