  • In this work we determine that the Hawking temperature of black holes possesses a purely topological nature. We find a very simple but powerful formula, based on a topological invariant known as the Euler characteristic, which is able to provide the exact Hawking temperature of any two-dimensional black hole -- and in fact of any metric that can be dimensionally reduced to two dimensions -- in any given coordinate system, introducing a covariant way to determine the temperature only using… CONTINUE READING
