# Back-reaction of the Hawking radiation flux on a gravitationally collapsing star II: Fireworks instead of firewalls

@inproceedings{MersiniHoughton2014BackreactionOT, title={Back-reaction of the Hawking radiation flux on a gravitationally collapsing star II: Fireworks instead of firewalls}, author={L. Mersini-Houghton}, year={2014} }

A star collapsing gravitationally into a black hole emits a flux of radiation, known as Hawking radiation. When the initial state of a quantum field on the background of the star, is placed in the Unruh vacuum in the far past, then in the exterior Hawking radiation corresponds to a flux of positive energy radiation travelling outwards from near the surface to future infinity. Based on pair creation, the evaporation of the collapsing star can be equivalently described by the absorption of an… Expand
