I am currently taking Advanced Physics Topics class and am doing a research project on Hawking Radiation(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was wondering if anyone knew of a free source I cold use that could explain the math behind the radiation a little better. I have looked on a few websites for information and have found many explanations of the radiation, but few that delve into its math. Wikipedia had a little basic info about the blackbody equations for temperature applied to a black hole and the powert of its radiation but I was looking for a source to show the derivation if it exists.

Can anyone reccomned a book I could get at a library, or a good online source, or explain it to me on this forum if you had time?

I have an ok understanding of the basic concepts behind the radiation but I want to have the math of the derivation to display as well, I wanted to work out the equations for a black hole about the size of one solar mass, and show its temperature and power of radiation and time untill evaporation
