Hawking Radiation for a Proca Field: Numerical Strategy
We compute the Hawking radiation for a Proca field in the D-dimensional Schwarzschild background. We construct a numerical strategy to solve the coupled system which describes a coupling between two physical degrees of freedom of the field due to the mass term. We show how to define the transmission factors for the coupled system from an S matrix and compute them to generate the Hawking fluxes.
