# Euclidean black hole extrinsic curvature

I have read that the extrinsic curvature at the horizon of a euclidean black hole is zero? Does anybody know how this can be shown?

Not sure how to answer your question fully, but since the horizon is two dimensional, there are two normals with respect to which extrinsic curvatures can be defined. If $n$ is one of the normals, the ext. curvature for that direction is $\mathcal{L}_ng_{\mu\nu}$ and so vanishes if $n$ is a Killing vector for your metric. In your Euclidean case this Killing property is what you'd need to show presumably. –  twistor59 Nov 1 '13 at 8:38
