Virtual black holes in noncommutative space–time are investigated using coordinate coherent state formalism such that the event horizon of a black hole is manipulated by smearing it with a Gaussian of width [Formula: see text], where θ is the noncommutativity parameter. Proton lifetime, the main associated phenomenology of the noncommutative virtual black holes, has been studied, first in four-dimensional space–time and then generalized to D dimensions. The lifetime depends on θ and the number…

The fate of radiating black holes in noncommutative geometry
We investigate the behavior of a radiating Schwarzschild black hole toy-model in a 2D noncommutative spacetime. It is shown that coordinate noncommutativity leads to: i) the existence of a minimal
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: A model of radiating black hole in noncommutative geometry
The phenomenology of a radiating Schwarzschild black hole is analysed in a noncommutative spacetime. It is shown that noncommutativity does not depend on the intensity of the curvature. Thus, we
Noncommutative Black Holes, The Final Appeal To Quantum Gravity: A Review
We present the state of the art regarding the relation between the physics of Quantum Black Holes and Noncommutative Geometry. We start with a review of models proposed in the literature for
Proton Decay, Black Holes, and Large Extra Dimensions
We consider proton decay in theories that contain large extra dimensions. If virtual black hole states are allowed by the theory, as is generally the case, then proton decay can proceed via virtual
Quantum field theory in curved space–time
Recent theoretical developments indicate that the presence of gravity (curved space–time) can give rise to important new quantum effects, such as cosmological particle production and black-hole
Noncommutative Geometry Inspired Charged Black Holes in Extra Dimensions
In a recent paper, Ansoldi, Nicolini, Smailagic and Spallucci (ANSS) have found a new, noncommutative inspired solution of the coupled Einstein-Maxwell field equations including black holes in
Noncommutative geometry inspired black holes in higher dimensions at the LHC
When embedding models of noncommutative geometry inspired black holes into the peridium of large extra dimensions, it is natural to relate the noncommutativity scale to the higher-dimensional Planck
Noncommutative geometry-inspired rotating black hole in three dimensions
We find a new rotating black hole in three-dimensional anti-de Sitter space using an anisotropic perfect fluid inspired by the noncommutative black hole. We deduce the thermodynamical quantities of
