Abstract: he v vacuum discussed recently by Fulling (1977) in his general study of alternative vacuum states in space-times with horizons is investigated specifically for the scalar and Dirac fields in Kerr space-time. An explicit evaluation of flux shows that except for the effects due to super-radiance of scalar waves, this vacuum corresponds to a black hole in thermal equilibrium with its environment.
