IRREVERSIBLE THERMODYNAMICS OF BLACK-HOLES

Abstract:
Black holes are shown to obey the principles of irreversible thermodynamics in the form of a fluctuation-dissipation theorem for their zero-point quantum fluctuations. Moreover Hawking radiation is shown to be related to the macroscopic radiation of a nonstationary black hole in accordance with Onsager's principle. © 1977 The American Physical Society.
