Abstract.

There are strong theoretical grounds for the generation of an intense radio pulse of intrinsically short duration during the evaporation of a primordial black hole. Similar emission physics are believed to be associated with Gamma Ray Bursts and certain supernova. Here we outline a program underway to mine the 50 Tbyte SETI@home Data Archive for serendipitous detections of such events.
