Abstract
We look in detail at those effects which slow down black holes of mass sim1015 g and affect their spatial distribution today. In particular we treat effects caused by the charge fluctuations of the hole which result from quantum-mechanical processes. The dominant energyloss mechanism for the holes is the expansion of the universe, which leaves them virtually at rest at the time of galaxy formation. The resultant violent relaxation should concentrate roughly half of them in present-day galaxies and their halos.
