Regularization of the stress-energy tensor, and semi-classical effects in black holes

Regularization of the stress-energy tensor was the main obstacle to study semi-classical effects in non-trivial backgrounds. I'll talk about a new method, "pragmatic mode-sum regularization", that overcomes this obstacle. And show results calculated using the new method, including recent results in Kerr background.
