The Problem of Time in the Quantum Theory of Black Holes

Abstract

We discuss the problem of time in spherically symmetric pure Einstein gravity with the cosmological term by using an exact solution to the Wheeler-DeWitt equation. A positive definite inner product is defined, based on the momentum constraint rather than the hamiltonian constraint. A natural notion of time is introduced via the Heisenberg equation.
