Discrete energy spectrum of Hawking radiation from Schwarzschild surfaces

Journal Article

We analyze the allowed energy levels of Hawking radiation from Schwarzschild surfaces in space-times with large extra dimensions. From the requirement that the wave functions associated with these particles be single-valued and obey radial boundary conditions, we derive an upper bound of their discrete energy spectrum as a function of the number of large extra dimensions and the mass of the black hole. Furthermore, we investigate the spacing of the energy levels.
