Is black hole elementary particle?

  1. Nov 4, 2009 #1
    After suggestion to search for black holes at LHC one can ask how much
    black hole is similar to the elementary particle?

    Can we apply second quantization to the field of black holes?

    Can we talk, for instance, about cosmological black holes production in analogy with
    cosmological particle production?

    No, a BH, even the smallest, is not an elementary particle. It is a non-linear filed equation solution in a curved space-time where no additive conservation laws exist, unlike elementary particle theory in a flat (Minkowski) space-time. Although there are heavy objects in the Universe, it is not necessarily that they are BHs.
