Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Stochastic behavior on the stretched horizon and Non-equilibrium fluctuation theorem

Presented by Satoshi Iso, KEK

8 July 2011 11:00 in E102

Black hole absorbs everything classically while it emanates Hawking
radiation via quantum effect.
In this talk, I will first explain how these two effects, dissipation
and quantum noise at the horizon,
can be described in a unified way by integrating out degrees of freedom
near the horizon.
We then apply the non-equilibrium fluctuation theorem, which was studied
in the statistical physics,
to a scalar field in the black hole background and discuss its
implications to the thermodynamics
of black holes.
