Dynamical Surface Gravity

  title={Dynamical Surface Gravity},
  author={Alex Buus Nielsen and Jong H. Yoon},
We discuss how the surface gravity can be classically defined for dynamical black holes. In particular we focus on defining the surface gravity for locally defined horizons and compare a number definitions proposed in the literature. We illustrate the differences between the various proposals in the case of an arbitrary dynamical, spherically symmetric black hole spacetime. We also discuss how the trapping horizon formalism of Hayward can be related to other constructions. PACS numbers: 04.70… CONTINUE READING
