On one part this paper bases on the fundamental approach to apply linear functional analytic methods in general relativity theory and to consider the Maxwell field equations around a black hole as evolution equations.
Combining this result with the COBE observation of anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background radiation, the total mass M of all black holes in the observable universe is bounded by
M < 2.4 · 10^{85} m_{p} = 4 · 10^{58}kg,
where m_{p} denotes the proton mass, m_{p} = 1.6·10^{27}kg.
This is the only paper I published in cooperation with my admired academic teacher R. Böhme. He died on May 21, 2000.
