On the law of error for mass fluctuations in black holes
Abstract
Based on an assumed form that the entropy should take for black holes, the statistics for mass fluctuations are derived from Gauss's law of error. The normal density which results is not a limiting form of any type of physical statistics. The analysis shows that the temperature and mass may become negative while the heat capacities are positive.
