Abstract

In this paper, we give a rigorous mathematical treatment of the late time Hawking radiation of massless bosons emitted by a class of collapsing, spherically symmetric, charged models of black hole formation, including both extremal and sub-extremal black holes. We will also prove a bound on the rate at which the radiation emitted approaches this late time limit. This includes an integrable decay rate of radiation emitted by extremal black holes, for which the late time limit vanishes. Thus, we show that the total expected quantity of any massless boson emitted by an extremal \RNS black hole is finite.
