This book presents a comprehensive review of the subject of gravitational effects in quantum field theory. Although the treatment is general, special emphasis is given to the Hawking black hole evaporation effect, and to particle creation processes in the early universe. The last decade has witnessed a phenomenal growth in this subject. This is the first attempt to collect and unify the vast literature that has contributed to this development. All the major technical results are presented, and… 
Mutually Interacting Quantum Fields in Curved Space-Times: The Outcome of Physical Processes
During the last years many efforts have been made to study quantum field theory in given unquantized space-times. This external field approach for the influence of classical gravitational fields is
Topics in Quantum Field Theory in Curved Space
In these lectures we consider some topics of Quantum Field Theory in Curved Space. In the first one particle creation in curved space is studied from a mathematical point of view, especially,
Black hole evaporation and quantum gravity
In this note we consider some consequences of quantum gravity on the process of black hole evaporation. In particular, we will explain the suggestion by 't Hooft that quantum gravitational
Quantum Gravity from Fundamental Questions to Phenomenological Applications
Investigating quantum gravity requires a comprehension of both, general relativity and quantum field theory. Therefore this thesis starts, after a general introduction to the treated topics, with a
GRAVITATIONAL RENORMALIZATION OF QUANTUM FIELD THEORY
We propose to include gravity in quantum field theory nonperturbatively, by modifying the propagators so that each virtual particle in a Feynman graph move in the space–time determined by the
QUANTUM FIELD THEORY IN CURVED SPACETIME1
OUTLINE These lectures will deal with selected aspects of quantum field theory in curved spacetime [1]. The basic outline of this series of lectures will be as follows: • Lecture 1. Quantization of
APPLICATIONS OF QUANTUM FIELD THEORY IN CURVED SPACETIMES
While there is as yet no full theory of Quantum Gravity, some computations can still be performed in the regime where both gravitational and quantum effects are appreciable. These types of
Physics in the Global Monopole Spacetime
In this paper we review some important aspects of the global monopole spacetime and present how this manifold modifies, at classical and quantum points of view, the movement of a charged particle.
Quantum Field Theory in Curved Spacetime
These lectures deal with selected aspects of quantum field theory in curved spacetime including the following topics: (1) Quantization of fields on a curved background, particle creation by
Quantum field theory in curved spacetime and the dark matter problem
Quantum field theory in nonstationary curved Friedmann spacetime leads to the phenomenon of creation of massive particles. The hypothesis that in the end of inflation gravitation creates from vacuum

The notion of quantum field remains at this time still rather elusive from a rigorous standpoint. In conventional physical theory such a field is defined in essentially the same way as in the

TLDR
A close relation of the Riemannian structure to the determination of vacuum expectation values is developed and illustrated by an explicit determination of a perturbative 2-point function for the case of interaction arising from curvature.
Particle creation by black holes
AbstractIn the classical theory black holes can only absorb and not emit particles. However it is shown that quantum mechanical effects cause black holes to create and emit particles as if they were
