In the current standard viewpoint small black holes are believed to emit black body radiation at the Hawking temperature, at least until they approach Planck size, after which their fate is open to conjecture. A cogent argument against the existence of remnants is that, since no evident quantum number prevents it, black holes should radiate completely away to photons and other ordinary stable particles and vacuum, like any unstable quantum system. Here we argue the contrary, that the… 

Black hole remnants at LHC

Most of the quantum gravity theories support the idea that near the Planck scale, the standard Heisenberg uncertainty principle should be reformulated by the so-called Generalized Uncertainty

Minimal length, maximal energy and black-hole remnants

In this paper, we investigate the impact of the generalized uncertainty principle (GUP), proposed by some approaches to quantum gravity such as string theory and doubly special relativity theories

Feasibility of primordial black hole Remnants as dark matter in view of Hawking radiation recoil

It has recently been suggested that black hole remnants of primordial origin are not a viable dark matter candidate since they would have far too large a velocity due to the recoil of Hawking

The Black Hole Uncertainty Principle Correspondence

The Black Hole Uncertainty Principle correspondence proposes a connection between the Uncertainty Principle on microscopic scales and black holes on macroscopic scales. This is manifested in a

Schwarzschild Black Hole Thermodynamics and Generalized Uncertainty Principle

In this paper, a linear generalized uncertainty principle (GUP), which suggests a minimum measurable length and a maximal measurable momentum, is used in analyzing COW experiment and Einstein-Bohr’s

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Will we observe black holes at the LHC?

The generalized uncertainty principle, motivated by string theory and non-commutative quantum mechanics, suggests significant modifications to the Hawking temperature and evaporation process of black

Generalised uncertainty principle Hawking fermions from minimally geometric deformed black holes

We derive the Hawking spectrum of fermions emitted by a minimally geometric deformed (MGD) black hole. The MGD naturally describes quantum effects on the geometry in the form of a length scale



Quantum Black Holes as Atoms

In some respects the black hole plays the same role in gravitation that the atom played in the nascent quantum mechanics. This analogy suggests that black hole mass $M$ might have a discrete

Quantum Fields in Curved Space

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

Lines of force of a point charge near a Schwarzschild black hole

The electric field generaled by a charged particle at rest near a Schwaruchild black hole is analyzed using Maxwell's equations for curved space. After generalizing the definition of the lines of

Quantum gravity corrections to neutrino propagation

Neutrino bursts accompanying gamma ray bursts that have traveled cosmological distances L are considered and a dependence L(-1)(os) approximately &pmacr;(2)l(P) is found for a two-flavor neutrino oscillation length.

Gravitation and Spacetime

Now more than ever, Gravitation and Spacetime, Second Edition, by Hans C. Ohanian and new coauthor Remo Ruffini, deserves John Wheeler's praise as "the best book on the market today of 500 pages or

Gravity-wave interferometers as quantum-gravity detectors

Nearly all theoretical approaches to the unification of quantum mechanics and gravity predict that, at very short distance scales, the classical picture of space-time breaks down, with space-time

Probing possible decoherence effects in atmospheric neutrino oscillations.

It is shown that the results of the Super-Kamiokande atmospheric neutrino experiment, interpreted in terms of nu(mu)<-->nu(tau) flavor transitions, can probe possible decoherence effects induced by

Quantum gravity: Testing time for theories

Gravity waves — predicted by Einstein's general theory of relativity, but not yet detected — may one day reveal more about the very early Universe. They may also test theories of quantum gravity

Testing violations of special and general relativity through the energy dependence of muon-neutrino tau-neutrino oscillations in the Super-Kamiokande atmospheric neutrino experiment

The atmospheric neutrino data collected by the Super-Kamiokande experiment span about four decades in neutrino energy E, and are thus appropriate to probe the energy dependence of the oscillation
