One possible fate of information lost to black holes is its preservation in black hole remnants. It is argued that a type of effective field theory describes such remnants (generically referred to as informons). The general structure of such a theory is investigated and the infinite pair production problem is revisited. A toy model for remnants clarifies some of the basic issues; in particular, infinite remnant production is not suppressed simply by the large internal volumes as proposed in…

White holes as remnants: a surprising scenario for the end of a black hole
Quantum tunneling of a black hole into a white hole provides a model for the full life cycle of a black hole. The white hole acts as a long-lived remnant, providing a possible resolution to the

It is argued that couplings in Reissner-Nordstroem black holes as a paradigm for a theory of remnants may give finite production despite an infinite spectrum, and naive arguments for infinite production fail.
Geodesically complete black holes
The 1965 Penrose singularity theorem demonstrates the utterly inevitable and unavoidable formation of spacetime singularities under physically reasonable assumptions, and it remains one of the main
A Note on Black Hole Information Paradox in de Sitter Spacetimes
The possibility of stable or quasi-stable Planck mass black hole remnants as solution to the black hole information paradox is commonly believed phenomenologically unacceptable. Since we need a black

It is argued that the rate is proportional to the thermodynamic quantity Tr e-H, where the trace is over the internal states of a black hole; this is in agreement with estimates from an effective field theory for black holes.
Thin-shell bubbles and information loss problem in anti de Sitter background
A bstractWe study the motion of thin-shell bubbles and their tunneling in anti de Sitter (AdS) background. We are interested in the case when the outside of a shell is a Schwarzschild-AdS space
Virtual Black Holes, Remnants and the Information Paradox
We revisit the question of the contributions of Planckian quantum black holes in general and of remnants in particular to low-energy physics observables. As long as quantum gravity preserves the
The mechanism why colliders could create quasi-stable black holes
It has been postulated that black holes could be created in particle collisions within the range of the available energies for nowadays colliders (LHC). In this paper we analyze the evaporation of a
