On an n-dimensional, massless, topological black hole with hyperbolic sections, we construct the two-point function both of a ground state and of a thermal state for a real, massive, free scalar field arbitrarily coupled to scalar curvature and endowed with Robin boundary conditions at conformal infinity. These states are used to compute the response of an Unruh-DeWitt detector coupled to them for an infinite proper time interval along static trajectories. As an application, we focus on the massless conformally coupled case, and we show, numerically, that the anti-Hawking effect, which is manifest on the three-dimensional case, does not occur if we consider a four-dimensional massless hyperbolic black hole. On the one hand, we argue that this result is compatible with what happens in the three- and four-dimensional Minkowski spacetime, while, on the other hand, we stress that it generalizes existing results concerning the anti-Hawking effect on black hole spacetimes.

Abstract

On an n-dimensional, massless, topological black hole with hyperbolic sections, we construct the two-point function both of a ground state and of a thermal state for a real, massive, free scalar field arbitrarily coupled to scalar curvature and endowed with Robin boundary conditions at conformal infinity. These states are used to compute the response of an Unruh-DeWitt detector coupled to them for an infinite proper time interval along static trajectories. As an application, we focus on the massless conformally coupled case, and we show, numerically, that the anti-Hawking effect, which is manifest on the three-dimensional case, does not occur if we consider a four-dimensional massless hyperbolic black hole. On the one hand, we argue that this result is compatible with what happens in the three- and four-dimensional Minkowski spacetime, while, on the other hand, we stress that it generalizes existing results concerning the anti-Hawking effect on black hole spacetimes.
