Title

How Classical Are TeV-Scale Black Holes?

Abstract

We show that the Hawking temperature and the entropy of black holes are subject to corrections from two sources: the generalized uncertainty principle and thermal fluctuations. Both effects increase the temperature and decrease the entropy, resulting in faster decay and 'less classical' black holes. We discuss the implications of these results for TeV-scale black holes that are expected to be produced at future colliders.
