Hawking Radiation

  1. Dec 13, 2005 #1
    I hear this is a result of quantum tunneling, what I am wondering is, can one solve the shrodinger equation for black holes under the idea that it is just a really really really deep finite well?

    Isn't Hawking radation a process in which a virtual particle (like virtual photon) travelling near the horizon creates particle-antiparticle pair, but before they get to annihilate, black hole pulls in one of them, and other one escapes ? (that creates some sort of a radiation)
