A non-perturbative formalism of quantum general relativity is applied to a classical Schwarzschild black-hole solutions. Quantization of gravity has been performed with a completely covariant method formulated by Kugo-Ojima, and a quantum effect on a system consisting of black holes and the scalar field is discussed using a WKB approximation. As a consequence, an expected value of the quantum Hamiltonian is found to be consistent with the semi-classical Hawking temperature at the event horizon…

Symplectic structure for general relativity and Einstein–Brillouin–Keller quantization
The Hamiltonian system of general relativity and its quantization without any matter or gauge fields are discussed on the basis of the symplectic geometrical theory. A symplectic geometry of


Loop quantization of the Schwarzschild black hole.
The algebra of Hamiltonian constraints Abelian is made, and therefore the constraint algebra is a true Lie algebra, which allows the completion of the Dirac quantization procedure using loop quantum gravity techniques.
Cosmological black holes: A black hole in the Einstein-de Sitter universe
As an example of a dynamical cosmological black hole, a spacetime that describes an expanding black hole in the asymptotic background of the Einstein-de Sitter universe is constructed. The black hole
Cosmological black holes and white holes with time-dependent mass
We consider the causal structure of generalized uncharged McVittie spacetimes with increasing central mass $m (t)$ and positive Hubble factor $H (t)$. Under physically reasonable conditions, namely,
Geometrothermodynamics for black holes and de Sitter space
A general method to extract thermodynamic quantities from solutions of the Einstein equation is developed. In 1994, Wald established that the entropy of a black hole could be identified as a Noether
Black holes in an expanding universe.
An exact solution of the Einstein-scalar-Maxwell system, in which two Maxwell-type U(1) fields coupled to the scalar field are found, which finds a regular horizon, which depends on one parameter.
Evolving black holes from conformal transformations of static solutions
A class of non-stationary spacetimes is obtained by means of a conformal transformation of the Schwarzschild metric, where the conformal factor $a(t)$ is an arbitrary function of the time coordinate
Notes on black-hole evaporation
This paper examines various aspects of black-hole evaporation. A two-dimensional model is investigated where it is shown that using fermion-boson cancellation on the stress-energy tensor reduces the

The Hamiltonian dynamics and thermodynamics of spherically symmetric Einstein-Maxwell spacetimes with a negative cosmological constant are considered and the theory is reduced to its true dynamical degrees of freedom.
Quantum spectrum for a Kerr–Newman black hole
In this paper, we consider the quantum area spectrum for a rotating and charged (Kerr–Newman) black hole. Generalizing a recent study on Kerr black holes (which was inspired by the static black-hole
