Partition Function of the Schwarzschild Black Hole

  title={Partition Function of the Schwarzschild Black Hole},
  author={Jarmo M{\"a}kel{\"a}},
We consider a microscopic model of a stretched horizon of the Schwarzschild black hole. In our model the stretched horizon consists of a finite number of discrete constituents. Assuming that the quantum states of the Schwarzschild black hole are encoded in the quantum states of the constituents of its stretched horizon in a certain manner we obtain an explicit, analytic expression for the partition function of the hole. Our partition function predicts, among other things, the Hawking effect… CONTINUE READING
