An imploding shell of radiation is shown to create a 2-D black hole within the framework of the ``'' theory. The radius of the horizon is given by , where is the mass of the black hole. The topology of the central singularity is that of a corner. The radiation emitted very far from the black hole is thermal with temperature . The back-reaction problem is solved to one-loop order.

This poster is a short version of Vendrell (1997b).
