    It is shown that, for static space-times, the phenomenon of Hawking radiation can be understood in terms of representations of the twodimensional Poincaré group. Thero zero-energy basis vector of one representation contains positive-energy basis vectors of another representation. An action of the two-dimensional Poincaré group is globally defined over the whole of space-time, but only generates isometries at the event horizon and in the asymptotically flat region (where it degenerates to simple translations). Some simple space-times are discussed.
