# Horizon state, Hawking radiation, and boundary Liouville model.

@article{Solodukhin2003HorizonSH, title={Horizon state, Hawking radiation, and boundary Liouville model.}, author={Sergey N. Solodukhin}, journal={Physical review letters}, year={2003}, volume={92 6}, pages={ 061302 } }

We demonstrate that the near-horizon physics, the Hawking radiation, and the reflection off the radial potential barrier can be understood entirely within a conformal field theory picture in terms of one- and two-point functions in the boundary Liouville theory. An important element in this demonstration is the notion of horizon state, the Hawking radiation being interpreted as a result of the transition of horizon state to the ordinary states propagating outside the black hole horizon.
