    Hawking radiation and Unruh effect are two well-known examples of the effect of quantum fields in curved spacetime. Anomalies play an important role in quantum field theory. It has been shown that anomalies can be used to find Hawking temperature. In this Master's thesis, we review Quantum Field Theory in Curved Spacetime (including Unruh and Hawking effects) and then study the application of gravitational anomalies for deriving Hawking radiation in Schwarzschild spacetime.
