**Introduction to Quantum Fields in Curved Spacetime and the Hawking Effect**

by Ted Jacobson

**Publisher**: arXiv 2004**Number of pages**: 59

**Description**:

These notes introduce the subject of quantum field theory in curved spacetime and some of its applications and the questions they raise. Topics include particle creation in time-dependent metrics, quantum origin of primordial perturbations, Hawking effect, the trans-Planckian question, and Hawking radiation on a lattice.
