Research Abstract 
A black hole means a spacetime region from which nobody can send a signal to observers at infinity. And this sort of the spacetime can be devided into two regions : one is exterior region which is causally connected to the infinity, another is interior region (black hole). We call a boundary of abobe two region "event horizon". However classical picture of black holes as "nothing can be emitted from the black hole" is drastically changed, if we take into account of quantum effects arround black holes. Prof.Hawking has been shown that black holes emit radiation originated by change of vacuum due to black hole formation. This so called Hawking radiation is recognized as the one of the most interesting phenomena of black hole. The Hawking radiation is a central issue of this research project. Radiations from black holes should climb up very deep potential in order to reach infinity. It follows that even if the radiation lies in a ordinary energy range of laboratories, its energy can exceed Planck scale near the horizon. This suggests the possibility that we access the physics beyond the Planck scale by means of Hawking radiation. In this research project, we investigated how the spectrum of the radiation modified, if we introduce a higher derivative term into scalar and electromagnetic fields which seems to mimic the effect of physics beyond the planck scale. Furthermore concentrating on the role of horizon, we propose an experiment in fluid to observe the phenomena which can be recognized as a acoustic analogue of the Hawking radiation. In this case, a sonic point where velocity of fluid exeeds sound velocity carries a role of horizon in the case of black hole. Finally, from a viewpoint of the fluctuationdisspation theorem, we discuss emergence of noise term which is caused by energyloss by Hawking radiation. This effect suggests the new perspective of black hole with a fluctuating horizon.
