Abstract: We study several realistic configurations making it possible to realize an acoustic horizon in the flow of a one-dimensional Bose-Einstein condensate. In each case we give an analytical description of the flow pattern, the spectrum of Hawking radiation, and the associated quantum fluctuations. Our calculations confirm that the nonlocal correlations of the density fluctuations previously studied in a simplified model provide a clear signature of Hawking radiation also in realistic configurations. In addition, we explain by direct computation how this nonlocal signal relates to short-range modifications of the density correlations.
