The Quantum Nature of Black Holes 

Author: Y. Leblanc (eFieldTheory.COM) Email: AbstractIn this work, it is conjectured that black hole quantization is an observerdependent endeavor, the quantum nature of these objects appearing very differently for observers near the horizon and those far away from it. In particular, generalizing considerations by Susskind, it is found that for observers near the horizon, neutral black holes of arbitrary dimensionality can be identified with the massive particle excitations of string theories. Making use of this result, it is further shown that the fundamental constant of General Relativity can be calculated from string theory parameters (or viceversa), in agreement with earlier calculations by 't Hooft. This article is dedicated to the memory of Professor Hiroomi Umezawa. Copyright © 1994 Yvan Leblanc. All rights reserved
