The black hole horizon as a quantum surface.
Abstract
In previous work it was argued why it is practically inevitable to assume the existence of an Smatrix that describes particle absorption and production by a black hole, and the relationship between this Smatrix and string theory was derived. The physical interpretation of the corresponding mathematical expressions however is quite different from string theory. The author has an algebra of operators now defined on a twodimensional Euclidean "world sheet". The two dimensional functional integrals correspond to a rather unusual field theory. The long distance structure of this theory follows directly from the long distance structure of the standard model at the GeV scale. The author emphasizes the rather delicate physical interpretation of this approach.
