Black Hole Spectrum: Continuous or Discrete?


We formulate a qualitative argument, based on Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, to support the claim that when the effects of matter fields are assumed to overshadow the effects of quantum mechanics of spacetime, the discrete spectrum of black hole radiation, as such as predicted by Bekenstein’s proposal for a discrete black hole area spectrum, reduces to… (More)
