Black hole thermalization rate from brane anti-brane model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We develop the quasi-particle picture for Schwarzhchild and far from extremal black holes. We show that the thermalization equations of the black hole is recovered from the model of branes and anti-branes. This can also be viewed as a field theory explanation of the relationship between area and entropy for these black holes. As a by product the annihilation rate of branes and anti-branes is computed.
