This Chapter contains brief review of the theory of classical and quantum fields propagating in the black hole geometry. It includes such subjects as quasinormal modes and ringing radiation, separation of variables in the Kerr spacetime and hidden symmetries, Hawking effect and quantum evaporation of black holes, quantum fields in the Rindler frame and the Unruh effect. We formulate and discuss four laws of the black hole thermodynamics. At the end of the Chapter we briefly discuss higher dimension generalizations.

Keywords:   Hawking radiation, quasinormal modes, Unruh effect, black hole thermodynamics
